Shona Hah Lelooska Native American Hand Carved Doll 1930-70 rare miniature 4.5
Shona-Hah Lelooska Native American Hand Carved Doll. It has a Chilcat blanket wrapped around it’s shoulders. I think this is representing a Haida elder. Her dolls are cultually significant. Her dolls are normally larger than this. The others I have seen are normally around 12 tall. This one is 4.5. Shona-Hah is the matriarch of the Lelooska family. She is mother to Chief Don Lelooska, Patty Fawn and Tsungani. Don was a prominent member of the tribe and was a storyteller. Many children in Northwest remember taking trips to see him and the stories he would tell and traditions he kept alive. Patty Fawn is known for her jewelry that she creates. Her dolls are highly valued and collected by private collectors and museums. Her dolls were often a collaboration with her son Chief Don Lelooska. Chief Lelooska would often help Shona Hah carve the heads and hands of her dolls. He was a highly respected artist in his own right whose carvings are highly regarded among museums and collectors. The costumes that the dolls wear are handmade by her. This could be really rare because her dolls are normally much larger.
