Chester Poleyestewa is a Hopi artist who is well known for carving traditional style kachinas. Each of his kachinas feature well thought out adornments and intricate carvings. The Hoho Mana kachina was carved from a dead cottonwood root, then adorned with natural vegetal dyes and paints. The kachina is completed with feather earrings and a head full of (legal) feathers. This kachina was first known to be an "import" from the Zuni and often accompanies the Hemis at home dances. This kachina stands 11 1/2" tall and 6" wide. This kachina can be hung or left to stand on its own.
