A magnificent 17" beaded doll from the early Reservation period, possibly Pine Ridge Agency. With a fully beaded yoke with morning stars and "turtle emerging from the lake" motif in predominately Cheyenne pink, cobalt blue "tadpoles" with fringe and three band bottom trim on a fully fringed old pattern hide dress made of Native tanned antelope hide. The beaded belt features a long colorful drop, beaded awl case with awl and beautiful knife sheath with a hand carved wood knife. The head is made from buffalo tail with the hair and is smoked to a deep rich tobacco brown. "Dentallium shell " choker and earrings are of un-dyed porcupine quills, harness leather and old tin and shows a small amount of insect damage to the quills although still intact save for one loose quill and sinew attachment. She sports a lovely pair of high top women's leggings and two pair of beaded bracelets on her lovely wrists. Doll body is of muslin and all beadwork is done with sinew on Native tanned hides. This doll is simply divine and a great testament to the love and skill of the Lakota people.
