    I found these beaded toys at a flea market today in Central Texas . The 'skull' looks to be a vertebra covered in beaded leather and the other is a person. I know they are handmade, anyone know if they are native folk artot tourist trade goods? Thanks

      They are beaded souvenir items, made by the Zuni tribe, located in New Mexico. The bull was traditionally beaded over a sheep vertebrae, the little figure beaded over a rabbit's foot.

      Here's a post about Zuni beaded figures, from about 4 years ago: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/240359-bead-rats

      Thanks CanyonRoad. They were too neat to pass for a couple dollars. That bull head will make a great gift for a longhorn fan friend of mine
