Stunning Kachina.

The Motsin or Disheveled Kachina is a guard, but is more known as a community leader. He enforces the attendance of the people to any community work parties. Carrying whatever tools he needs to enforce with (usually carries a rope in one hand and another tool in the other), he would take all the necessary actions needed to get his job done. He used to wear striped or torn out shirts, but now, carvers have made him in better clothing. Still, he usually appears black faced, with warrior pahos on his head, and feathers all around his ears.
This clown has many names, which give some information about his origin. Koshari is the most commonly used name for the clown. The Koshari can be found in many different pueblos. He can be considered to be the father of Kachinas. These clowns are both sacred and profane to the people. Their actions are both humiliating and funny. Carvers usually add their own styles into the making of the clown, depending on what they see as funny or humiliating.

Kachina doll is carved by Hopi artist Eloy Wytewa. Eloy is from Bacavi, Arizona. Bacavi is a village in Third Mesa on the Hopi Reservation in the northern region of Arizona.

    Hopi Eagle Dancer Kachina
    Posted by Calvin S. | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    I found this very wonderful Kachina here. I wanted a special gift for my Niece who has lived in AZ for nearly 25 years and enjoys the many special cultures present here. The purchase experience was very easy, and the Kachina arrived in perfect condition. I am sure that my niece will enjoy it very much.

    Memories
    Posted by Beatrice Walter | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    Being able to have a kachina doll shipped to me across the US is truly remarkable. Each time i order one it reminds me of my memories traveling to through the southwest in the 80's. All of the beautiful places i was able to visit, and the kind Native American people we got the pleasure of encountering and learning about their traditions. While you can't buy memories, each piece of southwestern art that i own is a reminder of some of the most precious times in my life.

    Only place i buy gifts
    Posted by Pat Leech | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    I'm glad to have been able to find a company that sells hand made item made in our own country. Not only are these gifts unique in their place of origin but as well as in the tradition behind each piece. When it comes to buying a gift for a family member, friend or other people in my life, i know that a gift from here will be 100% more meaningful than any gift i can buy at a near by chain store.

    Symbolic pieces of art!
    Posted by Denna Begay | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    I love my Native American heritage and couldn't be prouder of my background and roots. I know that purchasing a piece from Kachina dolls supports local artists who build these beautiful pieces by hand. The culture behind each piece is a story in itself and I cherish having each kachina doll I've purchased in my house.
