Ngayayataka - Corn Kachina (1950's)

This is an interesting 1950's doll. Acccording to the seller the Ngayayataka is one of the numerous corn kachina-beings and there are different variations on the Ngayayataka He is a well known dealer in Kachinas and knows his stuff so I'll go with that. The doll stands 11 1/2 inches tall and has nice abalone earrings and pendant. It has horse hair mixed in with the feathers as well. It's in really nice shape with a few few minor cracks with a well developed patina.
