A large vintage Kachina doll
The hopi people were the first to create kachina dolls, believing them to be sacred items used to communicate with the spirit world. The kachina were meticulously carved to look like a deity, animal spirit, deceased ancestor, or other spirit by shaping the wood and decorating the item with feathers, fur, and paint. They were then used in celebrations and festivals and, to this day, are still considered a very meaningful item. This is a very rare and large hopi sun face kachina doll. It measures 32 x 20 ins. It is in excellent condition and is hand made. This is one of my favorite kachina doll. It brightens up any room.
