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.

    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.

    We all need to see more affordable Kachina Dolls
    Posted by Thomas B. | Reviewing Kachina-Dolls.com | Posted on
    They are great but they are too expensive. Kachina Dolls for about $20 should be available for all types of Kachinas.

    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.
