This very decorated Crow doll with painted face was probably made for a special collector or for a museum.
All around the belt there are several specific pieces like the beaded pocket for ration tickets, the sheath for the alene, and a knife sheath in the back. The traditional cradleboard carries a commercial indian baby doll.
This exceptional piece belongs in a museum.
