Hopi Poli Taka "Butterfly Man" Kachina Doll by Neil David
This is a "Poli Taka" butterfly kachina doll by Neil David. Neil David (1944- ) is a famous painter and kachina doll carver from Walpi, whose work has appeared in many publications and museum exhibitions. The doll measures 12 1/2" height and depicts Poli Taka, the Butterfly Man. This doll is a very colorful depiction, with many colorful feathers and big butterfly wings, and Neil has used his artistic license to make the Butterfly Man appear even more butterfly-like. The doll is clearly signed by the artist, and is in good condition, but missing one antenna and the rattle from his right hand.
