Natseway, Thomas – Mini Lidded Katsina Figure with Sculpted Blanket


$ 245.00

Thomas Natseway is one of the most renowned miniaturists in Pueblo pottery.  Rarely does he make a piece that is over 1″ tall or wide!  This miniature is wonderfully complex in design and style. The piece is a katsina figure.  The top is a lid and the feathers are carved and the ruffle painted. The body of the figure is in a robe that is sculpted to appear as if it is being worn!  There are traditional cloud designs around the edge of the robe.  It is amazing for the size!  It is signed on the bottom, “Thomas Nasteway”.
