Kachinas are an iconic image of Native American art. They are considered spiritual deities, that are unique to the Hopi and Zuni Tribes. In ceremonies, men of the tribe portray the Kachinas, dressed in full garb. Kachina Dolls are used as a learning tool for the young women of the tribe, who otherwise, do not participate in the ceremonies. Our collection of Hopi Kachina Dolls are all hand-carved genuine Hopi Katchina dolls.
This piece is in excellent condition. It was acquired from a collector who collected Native American art in the 1990-2000's.
