Little Painted Uncis (Grandmas)
Cottonwood Carving (Chan Kasku) by Leonard Yellow Horse and painted by SaTerra Yellow Horse.
~Little Painted Uncis (Grandmas)~
Leonard's Uncis are so sweet - wrapped in blankets and long braids and painted by his daughter SaTerra. Each has a unique character and special features. When they are grouped together, you can just see the conversations and interactions start to happen!
Carved from cottonwood sourced from dry riverbeds on the Pine Ridge Reservation, the unique characteristics of the wood dictate the form of each figure.
Most are approximately 2.5" tall and 1.5" in diameter. Small Uncis are approximately 1.5" tall.
