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!

    Love it!
    Posted by Karen P. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I absolutely love this ring! When I was recently in Arizona, I saw rings just like this, but I did not buy one at the time. Once I arrived home, I realized how much I loved the style and was so happy to find this ring on Silver Tribe. I could not be happier! Stones are beautiful and I paid a fraction of what some shops in AZ were charging for comparable styles. I would definitely recommend this product and I love Silver Tribe. Fast shipping and great prices!

    Extraordinary
    Posted by Rose H. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    The Effie squash blossom necklace is nothing short of extraordinary! The detailed description was accurate and I will proudly wear this piece for years to come, and then pass it on to my granddaughter. It will be a wonderful family heirloom for generations to come!
