    This 17" devil hand puppet has beautifully sculpted and hand-painted paper hands and head.  The head measures about 4" high and has well-defined features, including a hooked nose, pointed ears, deep-set eyes with red irises, a rugged black beard, a sly grin with smile lines on each side, and flesh-colored horns.  Both hands are closed with 3-dimensional fingers.  The hand-painting gives depth with yellow undertones and green highlights  The sleeve of the puppet is made of woven red fabric with a collar made from a burgundy fabric strip and a simple button.  This puppet was purchased from the estate of Santa Fe artist Melinda Miles.  It is believed that she made this devil towards the end of her life and that this is a one of a kind piece.
