Kachina is approximately 9" tall including a 1/2" base, and is 6-1/2" wide at widest points. An absolutely beautiful Eagle Kachina, hand carved by Joesph Duwyenie. The Eagle or Kwahu Kachina appears in the Kiva Dances in March, or during the Powamu Ceremony. His dance resembles the eagle's motion of flight. The dance is also a prayer for more eagles. Each dancer is pressured to imitate every step and cry of the eagle to absolute perfection. Eagles are honored guests among the Hopis and they are given gifts just as the Hopi children are. At midsummer, they are ceremonially smothered and plucked of all their plumage. Although Third Mesa portrays their Eagle Kachina with an all black body, Second Mesa's Eagle Kachina has a yellow and red body. Birds in general, have always played an important role in the Hopi ceremonies and tradition.
Carving is a family tradition that was taught to him by his father, and like his father, he has passed it on to his sons. Joe started to carve in 1970. He has a distinctive style in the way that he carves the feathers and wings of his kachinas. He also likes to change the style of colors on each kachina that he makes. Joe enjoys the time he takes to carve and paint each kachina.
