Breathtaking, one of the most intricate Kachina Dolls we have ever had!


The Hopi Warrior Kachina acts as a policemen and is meant to bring a sense of security.


Lowell Talashoma was born January 23, 1950 on the Hopi reservation in Nothern Arizona. It was clear that he was a natural artist, as he made intricate drawings and carvings extremely advanced for his young age. He has since become a highly regarded carver and received numerous awards for his exquisite craftsmanship.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the bottom of the base "Lowell Talashoma and Kerry Lyle David". Kerry Lyle David is from Walpi on First Mesa. He is about 44 years old. He has been carving kachina dolls for about 34 years, yet he has been carving one-piece kachina dolls only since about 1985. Kerry uses only hand tools in making his carvings. He credits his skill to the teachings of his grandfather, Abbott, his father, Leslie, and his uncle, Gorman David. And he says he has also been influenced a lot by his uncle, Neil David, Sr., and from watching other master carvers such as Cecil Calnimptewa and Lowell Talashoma, Sr. His inspiration, however, always comes from watching the Kachinas in the dances. Kerry and Loweell's work is featured in Theda Bassman's Hopi Kachina Dolls and their Carvers, Helga Teiwes' Kachina Dolls, The Art of Hopi Carvers, and The Hopi Approach to the Art of Kachina Doll Carving by Erik Bromberg, among others. If you would like to see  more pictures of the doll please let us know. We are PROUD to bring you another remarkable Kachina Doll! Dolls like this one are the reason we are the #1 NATIVE AMERICAN ART SELLER!

    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.
