Hopi Statuette (N° 27002)

Ex-French collection of tribal art
Witnesses to the traditions of the Hopi Indian peoples of Arizona, the decorative Katsinam sculptures (sing. Kachina) are expressed during traditional dances accompanying the annual rain festivals. Traditional Kachina dolls are, for the Pueblo Native American group (Hopi, Zuni, Tewa Village, Acoma Pueblo and Laguna Pueblo), educational tools offered to children at the end of ritual festivals. This type of statuette, embodying a great diversity of spirits, represents katchina dancers and the colors are associated with the cardinal points. The polychrome patina is matte and velvety, minor chips.
