Jonathan Beyuka (Zuni, b. 1953) Inlaid Katsina Bolo Tie

lot of 2, each with carved stones and mosaic inlay using turquoise, coral, jet, and shell.  One is a snake dancer, height 5.74 in. and the other is a buffalo dancer, height 6 in. Both signed J. Beyuka sterling, who is listed in Wright on page 23.


With minimal wear; buffalo dancer with loop for a stand, however none came with bolo.  Also there appears to be something missing in the left hand of the snake dancer, perhaps a rattle that also served as a tie tack.

Estimate: $600 - $800
Price Realized Including Buyer's Premium
