Hopi are widely known as peaceful people. They are likewise welcoming hosts and have added villages and clans to suit those who adopt the Hopi farming lifestyle.
In ceremonial events the Hopi honor those absorbed clans as well as neighboring people. Over many hundreds of years the Navajo have been neighbors. Many visit Hopi dances and the Hopi made a spirit in their honor.
This TASAP Kachina is the Navajo Kachina. His snout is curved down, as if a bold squash. His eyes are hooked, one ear is a yarn blossom, the other a feather bouquet. He is colorful on purpose.
This 3”er is by the legendary Hopi carver Gil Maldonado. All Cottonwood root and in Mint condition. Authentic.
Absolute top notch collectible, with decades of showcase experience.
