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.

    Even more beautiful in person!
    Posted by Amy M. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I was afraid the pictures made the jewelry look better than it did in person, but when I opened the package I was absolutely amazed at how stunning the rings really were. I actually emailed silver tribe asking where I could review them because I'm so happy with my purchase. They arrived before the estimated date. I will definitely be getting more items.

    Christmas earrings
    Posted by William W. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I bought the wrong style of earrings (post) for my wife for Christmas. Remembering that she only wears HOOK style earrings, I had no trouble at all having customer service credit my account so that I could come back & pick out a new pair. Thank you & kudos to the Silver Tribe staff for their patience. You made it so easy for the return & replacement! You have a life long customer.

    I have ordered 5 rings from SilverTribe and always gotten what I ordered and at a good price. The one time I ordered the wrong size I was able to return it and exchange it for another with no problems. For me this has been a great site to order from and to recommend.
