Portrait of a young Comanche Boy ~ Two Feathers~





 
This doll was inspired by my friend Kai, a Comanche Indian many of us know, and just love! From the time I first met Kai, I have wanted to create an American Indian, but not just any Native American, a Comanche! I hope she thinks I did a good job! I studied many photos of little Comanche Warriors, and the clothing. I created his clothing from real leather,  beading, and real feathers. I hand scraped (tanned) the leather myself, to get it thin enough..wow what a job! I straightened Tibetan Lambs wool many many times to get the look of real Native Indian hair..it is gorgeous..I am envious of the cheek bones, and the hair!
I am offering him on ebay now!
                              This is the little warrior I created....

I've not seen really good quality Native American dolls since the ones my aunt used to make.
