Kachina is approximately 8" tall including a 1/2" base, and is 7" wide at widest points.

An absolutely beautiful Eagle Kachina, hand carved by the late Ron 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.

Ron Duwyenie learned how to carve by watching his relatives and friends. He was mainly taught by his father, Joseph Duwyenie. Ron began carving in 1980. Ron likes to change his style of carving a little because he wants his Kachinas to be different than his father's. Although one can see many similarities between his Kachinas and his father's, the way Ron paints and details his Kachinas is what sets them apart. Ron loves to carve and paint. He was born on May 5, 1965 in Keams Canyon, Arizona. Ron is a member of the Grease wood Clan of the Hopi Tribe.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the bottom of the base "Ron Duwyenie". 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!

    What I received was 100% better than I expected. The Pendant was just fabulous. I would rate it as a ten but the stars do not go that far.
