A wood Hopi Hunter Kachina doll from mid-twentieth century. It is hand-carved by a Hopi native, mounted on a wooden stand and was given out as a "trophy" by the Valley National Bank. There is a description printed on the bottom which reads, "VALLEY NATIONAL BANK FIVE BUY FIVE CLUB. This Hunter Kachina is the trophy awarded(?) to members of the Valley National Bank Five Buy Five Club - an honorary organization which gives recognition and reward to Valley Bankers(?) who distinguish themselves by procuring new(?) bank business. As the owner of this trophy, you can be justly proud of your achievements.(?) Valley Bank is proud of you. Hand-crafted by Robert Quotoypa(?) a Hopi Indian who lives near Oraibi on the Hopi country of northern Arizona. This Hunter Kachina is a fitting(?) symbol of the spirit which means 'Valley Bank' to people all over the world." Excellent condition. Provenance: Valley National Bank, Arizona. 8 1/4" (w/stand); 6 1/4" (doll only).
