Zuni painted wooden tablita in the form of a Knifewing God, c. 1920s. Wooden Knifewing figures were used in Zuni house shrines (one was photographed by Edward Curtis in 1903) and in ceremonial occasions. This one was clearly used as a woman's tablita in a dance, and like many tablitas was given away or sold after it has served its purpose. A wonderful piece of folk art, painted on both sides. 15" x 20". $1295 (WD KNIFEWING) Inquire/Order Fantastic set of 3 Navajo carved stone horses, c. 1850-1880.
