Depicting a traditional hoop dancer, this Navajo kachina was carved by Victor Abeita. The piece is predominantly dark brown in color and is accented with white and black feathers, white fur, and tan and red leather, along with a single piece of turquoise. The kachina holds a large, wooden hoop in each hand, while the leather covering its lower half is painted in traditional designs in black and red. The Hoop Dancer amuses audiences who are watching a ceremony, tossing rings that represent the circle of life. 9 1/2″ tall x 5″ wide.
