|The Hololo katsina (kachina) is said to hasten the safe birth of a child. This fine old-style carving was created in 2003 by Cordell Naseyoma, of Hotevilla on Third Mesa. Made to hang on the wall in the traditional style, the doll is 9.5 inches high with a double fan of feathers on the back of his head, secured by a "shield" with a warrior mark. He is painted with natural mineral paints and also wears a yucca-fiber headband.|
