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. Adding this piece of handcrafted art to your collection will be the best thing you do today!
