Cow Kachina Dancer
18" h x 12" w x 6 ½" d
ED:8 - 2015 - Bronze
The Cow Kachina is the newest kachina in the ancient Hopi culture. It was introduced after the introduction of cattle to the region by the Spaniards. In the winter dances the people with cattle will pull the feathers from the back of the mask of the spirit dancer and hold on to them in their homes for good luck for their herds for the following year. I have always loved the Minotaur look of this kachina, half man, half bovine.
