  • Spirit Doll

    The Hopi and Navajo carve these dolls and call them Kachina as I'm not Indian I call mine Spirit Doll.
    Arizona Cottonwood limb found in a wash near my home.
    I carved the arms separate of the body and then made wood pins to attach them. The base is also Arizona Cottonwood limb
    The doll is painted with Artist acrylic. P1070272 resize.jpg

    The design elements make them so unlike other native carving styles. Do you sell those?

          Hi, thank you this is my favorite one I've carved so far. I don't sell them but thank you for asking. My family scoops them up before I can think about selling any. I manage to keep some for myself. Thank you also for the offer to help with images it looks like I'm going to be ok.

                  I saw Kachinas in AZ and NM, carved from Cottonwood tree roots in the traditional fashion.
                  Should learn more about their cultural significance. As I have been doing for a long time with
                  the art and carvings of the Pacific Northwest native people.

                        Very nice Carver Lady. I like the colors you used. Consistent with the ones I would see when I lived out there. I have a friend in Scottsdale who has collected kachinas for many years.
