Quantity in Basket: None
Code: 10013731
Price: $264.00

Known as the supernatural spirits of the Hopi, the kachinas embody the spirits of living things and ancestors that have passed and are part of nature. It is essential to the Hopi to preserve harmony with the world they live in new and old. As the kachinas’ possess these powers over nature they are also seen as guardians of the Hopi people. They can insure human, plant and animal fertility, everything living. Carved from cottonwood root, each kachina doll resembles a supernatural spirit that is given to a child educating them about the ways of life.

This Talavai Kachina is known as the Hopi morning singer. They appear in pairs on rooftops and sing songs, waking the people in the village. They appear in the Powamu Ceremony, also known as the Bean Planting Festival. They are holding a spruce tree and ringing bells. They (as pair) usually stand to the side of the procession and sing.

This kachina doll was made by George Hunch. It measures, approximately: 3 in. x 7 in.
