Sio Salako (1940's - 1950's)

This 9 Inch doll is circa 1940's 50's. The Sio Salako Kachina came from the Zuni originally and became one of the many Kachina spirits. The doll is generally good condition, though some paint has flaked off with time. There is a series of 10 small holes across the top back of the head that obviously had feathers in them at one time. The remains of a single feather still sit atop the centre of the mask. It would of been a real sight all decked out in feathers!!
