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! Dolls like this one are the reason we are the #1 NATIVE AMERICAN ART SELLER!

    Finely crafted, beautiful jewelry.
    Posted by Elizabeth W. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I first bought two turquoise necklaces. I wanted to wait until I saw them to decide whether or not to order something more. I was totally satisfied with their quality. I then ordered several pairs of earrings. For some reason these took longer to get to me, but when I opened the box, I was again very satisfied with the quality of the craftmanship and the beauty of the stones and the silver. Absolutely beautiful!

    I purchased the liquid silver necklace. And I don't know why it took me so long it's so beautiful and so well made. Versatile too as it can be worn with pendants.

    Great customer service
    Posted by Douglas S. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I purchased a pendant for my wife for Christmas. Even though it was quite beautiful, my wife already had a blue turquoise pendant. My wife found another pendant in green turquoise on their website that she loved, so I called Silver Tribe and they said it would be no problem exchanging the two pendants. A few days later we received the new pendant and my wife loves it. Thanks for the great service.
