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!

    Beautiful watch
    Posted by Donna C. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I bought a sliver and gold Navaho watch with stretch band. I loved the watch, but it didn't run. SilverTribe sent me 2 different batteries as they were not certain which I needed. I replaced the battery and am happy to say it works very well. Thanks to SilverTribe for going the extra mile to help a now very happy customer.

    I got two pair of lapis earrings. Both are unique, and just beautiful! And, as with my previous orders, I got them really quickly.
