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!

    Most reliable shipping online!!
    Posted by Donna S. | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    Love purchasing kachina dolls from this site because i know i wont have to worry about it arriving damaged or getting lost. Buying such fragile pieces of art online is always worrisome as some companies just throw it in a box and the carriers aren't always as delicate as they should be with them. From experience Kachina-Dolls goes the extra step and individually packages each doll with care so that it arrives in perfect condition and can withstand the transit conditions. Thanks for always having such a great selection of affordable kachinas!

    sacred memories
    Posted by Rose Jensen | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    When i grew up, i remember my parents taking me to my grandfathers house out in Arizona every summer where he would sit and tell me the legends of each one of his Kachina dolls. Our story time wasn't out of children books, it was of the legends of the Navajo tribe. Those summers are the ones i will never forget and being able to have a few of the kachina dolls shipped out of the state i once used to visit each summer as a child, means more than words can describe.
