The Fancy Dancer is much like the Hoop Dancer. His purpose is to entertain the audience. The feather fan dance bustle is meant for passing along prayers. This is a wonderful piece that is created in a style that is unusual today. Very few of the artists make the Native American dolls this way. The action is wonderful and the carving, painting and details are very accurate. ~Sammie Walker (Hopi-Navajo)
