One-Piece Carved Cottonwood Root kachina
Carved from a single piece of cottonwood root, this Kachina ranks among the more skillful Hopi artisans of his generation. As with all great works of art, the more you look, the more you see. The three dimensional nature of the figure gives the viewer unlimited angles to view, scrutinize and enjoy. The in-cutting is deep and rich. Much under-cutting adds dimension and life. Growing out of the base, through a single foot, into, over, and under, the carving is amazing. Check out the detailed hands and the cloth draping - masterful!
