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.

    My shopping experience with Kachina-Dolls.com was a breeze. The ordering process was quick, and my Eagle Kachina doll arrived within a few days even using the free shipping.

    Easy process
    Posted by Henry Oswin | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    Navigating around computers doesn't come as easy to me as it does to other people these days. I find it complicate to use website to order things online on most websites. This website made it easy for me to find the exact piece that i was looking to buy, as well as complete my order.

    I have been collecting Kachina Dolls since the 90s. Its great to find a website that has such a diverse collection at such reasonable prices. Not many places online sell such rare and unique pieces of art, so upon finding your website it was like striking gold. Your descriptions are true to the dolls that i have purchased and its nice to see that you also provide the legend behind each one.

    Bringing the Southwest to me!
    Posted by Laurie Jenkins | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    I grew up in New Mexico with my grandparent where southwest spirit was everywhere. Since then i grew up and got married and had my own family and moved to Maine. Kachina-Dolls helps me build a little of that Southwestern spirit in my own home and even though were states apart, their spirit is still here with me every day.
