Kachina is approximately 15" tall including a 3-1/4" base, and 6-1/2" wide at widest points.

This is a truly captivating Kachina that is packed with detail.

Tasap yeibichai is the grandfather of the Navajo Kachina, and is one of the more enjoyable features of the Navajo Kachina Dance. He does not speak; instead he acts out “in a comical way” whatever he wants. He starts the dance, acting as a leader in both the singing and the dancing. His dance step is a sort of Lively exaggeration, with the occasional pause for comic relief, such as a request for food. All of his acts are done in pantomimes that make the audience laugh.

Woody Sewemaenewa showed the talent required to be a great Kachina carver at a very early age. Since he was to young to be initiated as a carver, he would sneak into his father's shed and carve in secret. One day when his kachinas were discovered, everyone in his family knew that Woody had the gift to become a carver. Then, he was guided and initiated properly by his father. Now, Woody's work is known and recognized due to his hard work and artistic ability. Woody loves to constantly carve kachinas and his passion is seen in the different styles of kachinas that he makes. He was born on November 27, 1969 in Keams Canyon, Arizona. Woody belongs to the Greasewood Clan.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the bottom of the base "Woody Sewemaenewa ". If you would like to see a picture of the signature on the bottom of the base or more pictures of the doll please let us know. We are PROUD to bring you another amazing Kachina Doll!

    I have had trouble ordering on line as I have move twice recently so I called them. And a wonderful women named Tia helped me as I was having questions regarding specific stones on lecklaces and rings, pendents ect. She said she would check the website herself for me and called me back with the perfect product. Everything I have purchased is stellar I would recommend SilverTribe to anyone that asks me. Thanks Tia

    Love it! It is absolutely beautiful and I could not be happier with the purchase. It arrived in record time and added the right touch of elegance to the silver and opal pendant it was bought to go with. I would definitely purchase from Silver Tribe again.
