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!

    Finding this website was a true gift! Their affordable prices and large inventory of different dolls, makes it easy for me to share my Native American culture with those around me. I find pieces for myself that symbolically represent different parts of my life as well that serve as a reminder of who i am today and i dont have to break the bank purchasing them.

    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.
