Hopi Hemis Kachina Doll 20th Century
A wood Hopi Kachina doll from mid-twentieth century. Depicting the Hemis Kachina. A description from "Hopi Kachina Dolls", by Harold Colton, page 50-51, "Case mask, of which half of the face is painted green and the other half pink, or it may be all white. Surmounted by an elaborate tableta painted with phallic and cloud symbols. Douglas fir ruff. Kilt, sash, woman's belt, fox skin, red moccasins. Hank of blue yarn across one shoulder and chest. Body painted in black corn smut with light colored half moons. Carries rattles and spring of Douglas fir. The Hemis Kachina is usually selected as the principal character in the Niman Kachina Dance and so is sometimes called the Niman Kachina." Very Good Condition with very minor paint loss. 13 1/2" tall.
