Kachina is 13-1/4" tall including 2-3/4" base, and 6" wide at widest points.

Stunning Kachina.

The Motsin or Disheveled Kachina is a guard, but is more known as a community leader. He enforces the attendance of the people to any community work parties. Carrying whatever tools he needs to enforce with (usually carries a rope in one hand and another tool in the other), he would take all the necessary actions needed to get his job done. He used to wear striped or torn out shirts, but now, carvers have made him in better clothing. Still, he usually appears black faced, with warrior pahos on his head, and feathers all around his ears.
This clown has many names, which give some information about his origin. Koshari is the most commonly used name for the clown. The Koshari can be found in many different pueblos. He can be considered to be the father of Kachinas. These clowns are both sacred and profane to the people. Their actions are both humiliating and funny. Carvers usually add their own styles into the making of the clown, depending on what they see as funny or humiliating.

Kachina doll is carved by Hopi artist Eloy Wytewa. Eloy is from Bacavi, Arizona. Bacavi is a village in Third Mesa on the Hopi Reservation in the northern region of Arizona.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root. It measures approximately 13-1/4" tall including 2-3/4" base and is 6" wide at its widest points.

    I received my ring as promised. When I opened the package I was flabbergasted. My ring was so beautiful and the fit was perfect. You can't go wrong with the price.
