Selestewa's Ogre Woman Masterful Kachina
Among the more dynamic Kachinas, Soloko Wuqti, Ogre Woman, is a formidable figure. She has big yellow eyes to prove she can see every transgression, every wrong. And she is equipped to enforce her duties, carrying a long hook with which to snag her prey, a large knife, and a basket to carry away her spoils. When Soyoko Wuuqti arrives, you must be good. A mostly one-piece carving, deeply undercut, loaded with details and wild hair. By masterful Hopi carver Leonard Selestewa, c.1995, eight inch figure needing a twelve inch shelf, MINT . . . c'mon, you know you want 'er . . .
