DESCRIPTION:

This is a wonderful piece of Navajo artistry! This piece of Native American Pottery is Navajo hand crafted by artist Ben Livingston, out of real Alabaster, Turquoise, Coral, Pin Shell, and Feathers. The Alabaster stone is hand carved into an adorable buffalo fetish, while inlaid Turquoise creates the buffalo's eyes. Feathers, Turquoise, and Coral beads, along with other hand carved patterns can be seen accenting the figurine for an extraordinary finish. 

Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of its appeal and beauty.

Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.

    Its great to find companies that go out of their way to please their customers. Being retired and on a tight budget, i can truly appreciate the free shipping service that Kachina-Dolls offers to their customers. I know that shipping something of this size is costly as i have tried to order from other websites. Knowing that, i truly value that you offer this service for free to your customers as it makes it easier for me to purchase one of these pieces of art on my tight budget.

    Exceptional Customer Service
    Posted by Nora Lott | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    I have to give props to the customer service representatives who work here. I am not a collector of Kachina dolls but i wanted to purchase one as a gift for some dear to me. The customer service reps were patient with me and answered all of my questions in guiding me to buy the doll that would be the most meaningful to the recipient. The experience was superb and i truly appreciate the time you guys took with me to make sure that the gift was exactly what i wanted.

    Outstanding Quality
    Posted by Kevin Acostin | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    When i buy from Kachina Dolls i know that i am getting a quality product! I have purchased a few Hopi Kachina Dolls and the detail in each piece is beyond words. Knowing that each piece was hand carved by a talented Hopi artist is remarkable. The detail each piece has from top to bottom is something that you can find anywhere else.

    Pieces made with Pride
    Posted by Wayne Kuntz | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    I have to give credit to you guys for having such quality kachina dolls! I recently purchased one of Hopi Kachina dolls for my future father in law and i must say that it really was a gift he appreciated. It wasn't just a regular gift that was made overseas like most things people gift these days. It was a hand crafted gift made with Native American pride that was meaningful, given that he is part Hopi.

    Unique work of art!
    Posted by Genevive Marshall | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    Since i move to the East coast, i piece of me got left behind in Albuquerque. Since finding this website i have been able to find that missing piece by showcasing these unique pieces of Native American art in my house. Not only does it make for a unique and spiritual house decor that no one else has out here in the east coast, it also brings me a little bit closer to home and my memories there.
