Kachina is approximately 10" tall including a 1-1/2" base, and 5" wide at widest points.

Great proportion, and amazing detail.

The Buffalo Dancer or Kocha Mosairu is not a Kachina, but rather a social dancer. It is usually seen in ceremonies in January on First Mesa. It is a doll that most carvers do not mind doing as part of their repertoire. His popularity began from the works of Alvin James Makya who made one of the first dolls. It is now a favorite among collectors. All animals are an important part of the Hopi culture, they are believed to provide guidance, health, and protection.

Award winning artist Keith Torres and his work, can be seen in the book, "Katchina Dolls and Their Carvers" by Theda Bassman. He is one of the most creative Hopi Carvers around. With his own style of carving, Keith has shown an incredible art talent, his carving and detailing combination have produced among the best Kachina dolls to date. He puts a lot of time and effort into his Kachina Dolls, trying to make them as perfect as he sees them in his own mind. Starting in 1985, Keith was taught how to carve by Edward Poleahla. One of the things he enjoys most in the creation of a Kachina doll is the painting. Keith was born on December 14th, 1963 in Window Rock, Arizona. He is a part of the Coyote and Fire Clans of the Hopi Tribe.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the side of the base "Keith Torres".

    Amazing!
    Posted by Christina J. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    This ring is so beautiful, the pictures are very nice but it's so much better in person. I did have to get it resized at a local jewelry store (my mistake) but the jewelers were impressed with how authentic the silver and stones are for how much I paid. I never take the time to give reviews but I really want to support this wonderful business!

    The inlaid lapis lazuli ring I recently recently exceeded my expectations. The work was very clean and smooth, and the ring arrived promptly in perfect condition. Kudos, too, on the website, where it is easy to find a specified type of item, and a fun wishlist. I find the prices to be very competitive.

    The shipping was prompt, the cuff bracelet beautiful and delicate. The company immediately answered my question and added the gift box which I forgot when checking out. Highly recommend!

    Fastest Service Ever

    The beautiful liquid silver necklace arrived in record time. Three days after I placed the order. My wife loves it. Lots of compliments. Just the right length and 50 strands are perfect; not too much weight nor excessive.. The tone is somewhat golden-silver. Not glitzy. Just right. Thank you.
