Navajo Made Soft Sculpture Chief Horse
Navajo Made Soft Sculpture Chief Horse by Peter Ray James
A horse or burro is a beast of burden and regarded as a member of the family for Native people. This beautiful and large soft sculpture was created by Peter Ray James, a Navajo who handsews these showpieces and stuffs them, then paints various designs on them. This wonderful horse is finished with a leather fringe mane, a horsehair tail, and prayer feathers tied to its back. All are handcrafted by Peter. Each doll is signed on the back.
