  • Crow Mother Kachina Doll

    'Crow Mother' Hopi Kachina Doll (reproduction)
    Cottonwood Root
    5 1/4" inches including base
    Acrylic paints

    Hi All
    I love to carve Kachina Dolls and the Hopi 'Crow Mother' is a favorite one to carve. The wings, hands, feathers and yucca leaves are carved separately. So when a good friend of mine ask me if I could carve them a 'Crow Mother' Kachina Doll I jumped at the chance. This is one of the smaller Kachina dolls I have carved and i enjoyed the process.

    All the Kachina Doll's that I carve are labeled on the bottom of the base with a reproduction mark which looks like an up-ended crayon. This mark tells the viewer or buyer that it wasn't carved by a Hopi.

    Hi Kathy, Looks like that takes a lot of Effort to get it just right. It has good Eye Appeal with Great Bright Colors. I think your Friend will Treasure it. Merle

      I agree with Merle. It looks like a lot of work goes into making one of those Kachina dolls, but they look so interesting. Nice work, Kathy!

        Hi Merle, Happy New Year
        Thank you, I think the smaller ones are harder to carve than the larger ones.

          Hi Bob K,
          Happy New Year
          Yes you are right they do take more work and they're fun. Each doll has a story.

            WELL DONE! Kathy, are those your own colors or is this characteristic of this particular doll? No matter the colors really set off your fine carving

                  Very cool! I've always admired them but never spent the money to buy one. Is that mark that shows it's not a hopi doll a universally recognized mark?

                          Hi There and thank you too! I believe the mark is universal it also shows that the carving is not an original.

                            Sorry for being a bit ignorant but up here in Canada we don't see those too often. What 'mark' are you guys referring too? (Just for my own information.)
