Cybis - Dakota "Laughing Water" Minnehaha - Signed, Numbered Closed Limited Edition - c 1969
This wonderful Cybis porcelain sculpture is one of the North American Indian Collection. It is from a small edition, only 350 released in the U. S. A., and only 150 additional released worldwide.
Laughing Water was given a full page in color in the Cybis catalog. Cybis quotes from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow "Laughing Water Plaiting mats of flags and rushes Thinking of a hunter From another tribe and country, Young and tall and very handsome."
She is in Excellent Condition, and comes with the separate wooden base. The underside of her base in contoured, and the wooden base has the appropriate sized cutaway so the porcelain fits securely.
The Cybis Porcelain Price Guide by Marren, 2003 Edition, lists the current value at $3,750.00, so we offer her at a large discount.
