Kachina is approximately 8" tall including a 1/2" base, and is 6-1/2" wide at widest points.

Beautifully made Eagle Kachina!

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.

Joseph Duwyenie is an experienced carver. 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. Joeseph 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 doll..

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

    Wonderful on all counts
    Posted by Ed R. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    This was a great experience. The item itself was beautifully made, truly an excellent, outstanding piece of work. There was a discount offer and I took advantage of that. The item was shipped promptly and got here in perfect condition, as it was well packaged. I have nothing but good things to say about this place, its service, and its products. I couldn't be happier. (Reading this over, I know it sounds like a fake review, but believe me, it's not. A rave review, yes.)
