The Apache Crown Dancers are a crowd favorite during the annual Gallup Inter-Tribal Ceremonial. He is always looking into the crowd to see who he is going to scare next, or bring out to dance with. Plus, the Apache Crown Dancer is one of the Benn’s signature pieces. It is amazing how realistic the pin/pendant is compared to the real thing. The detail of the mask and the body are something you will remember for a lifetime. Zuni artists Virgil & Shirley Benn have recreated the Crown Dancer using shell, jet, spiny oyster, and turquoise. This will look stunning on and will grab the attention of all who see it. The Benns have slowed down and just don’t make as much as they once did, you never know when you will get your next chance (if ever) to get one of these magnificent dancers.
