This is an amazing Kachina doll carving captured in motion.

The Mastop or Death Fly Kachina is the second Kachina to appear on the Third Mesa only. He always arrives in pairs on the next to last day of the Soyal Ceremony. He represents a prayer of fertility for the Hopi women from their dead Hopi ancestors. In pairs, they would seek women from child to the very oldest, grab their shoulders from behind, and make a series of small hops indicating copulation. All Hopi women do not shy away from his embrace because it is a serious fertility rite.

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". 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 HOPI KACHINA DOLL!!!!!!

    Nice ring
    Posted by Leanna A. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I was satisfied with the American Indian Coral Sterling Silver ring, Sterling Silver Southwestern Turquoise flower ring, and Mult-icolor Inlay American Indian Zuni ring. The rings run small in size stature. Thank God I have small/medium fingers.

    feather key chains
    Posted by Nancy P. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    The key chains are nice but I thought they would be larger. The picture on your site made them seen larger even though the measurements were given. I love your products just somewhat disappointed this time because they are a wedding gift.

    Renewal Rings
    Posted by Robin K. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    It took us awhile to find the right size that we needed, but Silver Tribe was very patient with us and very helpful with helping us find our Rings we wanted to for our 25th Anniversary to renew our vows. Thank you Silver Tribe, the rings are perfect. And fit very nicely.
