Kachina is approximately 7-3/4" tall including a 1" base, and is 5-1/2" wide at widest points.

Outstanding example of Hopi artistry!

The Ahola or Germination God plays a major role in the Hopi culture. He controls the growth and reproduction of all things. He is the oldest of the Kachina Clan. He is an important chief Kachina for both First and Second Mesa, because he opens the Powamu ceremony with a kiva performance on the first night. He is the Solstice or Return Kachina, as well as the Sun Kachina. Most Hopi women would place seeds of corn at the door of the kiva before the Ahola appears so that his presence blesses the seeds to be reproductive. He visits each of the kivas to offer strength for the up coming year. At the end of the ceremony, Ahola descends to a shrine where he bows four times to the Sun and asks for long life, good health, happiness, and good crops for his children.

Nate Jacob is an accomplished Kachina carver. His work has been growing in popularity very quickly. His unique carving and painting styles make his Kachinas different and unique. Nate learned how to carve from Cecil Calnimptewa. He started getting into the art in 1985. Nate enjoys the process of carving the Kachina more than painting or sanding it because he loves trying to make sure that it will match the vision of the Kachina he already has in mind. Nate is from the Tobacco Clan of the Hopi Tribe. He was born on July 21, 1959 in Second Mesa, Arizona.

    Ear Rings for wife
    Posted by James C. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I had bought a necklace for my wife 20 years ago in Tuson, az. She always wanted ear rings that would match. I went to your web sight and found earing that matched as if they were made at the same time. She loved them and I want to thank you so very much. A very grateful husband.
