Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Zuni beadwork has evolved from tourist souvenirs to detailed pieces of folk art.  First the Zuni artists carve a wooden form and then they bead over it, using the peyote stitch and seed or glass beads.  With a continuous strand, Zuni beaders meticulously create beautiful patterns throughout their beadwork.  This phenomenal Comanche Dancer was hand beaded by award winning artists Farlan and Alesia Quetawki.  They won four awards on this dancer alone; 2nd Place in Santa Fe Indian Market 2018, Second Place in the Heard Indian Fair and Market 2019, First Place in the Zuni Festival of the Arts and Culture 2019, and Best in Category in the Gallup Inter-tribal Indian Ceremonial 2019.  The set of ribbons in the photo come with the dancer.  The Quetawkis carved a balsa wood dancer and beaded over it.  The eyes were beaded first with the face beaded over, giving them a realistic look.  There is an amazing amount of detail beaded throughout.  This one-of-a kind beaded dancer will elevate any art collection.  Signed

19” tall x 6  3/8” long x 5  5/8” wide
