/*This Katsina carving of a deer or antelope dancer may be Zuni. It is not Hopi. Horns are tape-wrapped and the rest of the attire better suits a Zuni interpretation of this figure.*/ —Martha Struever, American Indian art dealer and author /*This popular Katsina has power of the over rain and brings the increase of deer for hunting. The deer dancer is usually followed by a wolf or mountain lion Katsina.*/ —Ralph T. Coe
