This stunning wood Hemis Kachina Doll was hand carved and painted by Geraldo Dukepoo, a Hopi Indian from the Jemez Pueblo. It is one-of-a-kind and features leather, feathers, and beads for decoration.
Kachina Dolls are gifts given in hope of future abundance and health, as well as tools for education. The Kachina Dolls of today's art market are a bridge not only between the spiritual world and mortals but also between Hopis and non-Hopis. Each year Kachinas come, they walk upon the earth and they dance to bring life and renewal. When the Kachinas return to the spirit world at the end of the planting, they return with prayers of the Hopi that we might all continue on this earth for another round in the circle of life.
The beautiful Hemis Kachina represents happiness of a successful harvest.
