This wonderful early kachina was purchased in 1950 from a Navajo Trading Post in Flagstaff Arizona and is a beautifully carved and painted representation of the Navajo People. Although carved by an elderly Hopi from 1st Mesa this kachina depicting a Navajo man was purchased at a kachina dance depicting these same Navajo spirits at Moenkopi in 1950. The well carved figure features a depiction of the typical Moenkopi shale stained Navajo moccasins, woven wool garters, dance kirrtale, silver concho belt, bandolier bag, native tanned deer hide arm bands, rattle and wand, ceremonial necklace and wool wristlets, mouth wrapping and headpiece. Remnants of the feather fluffs are still in evidence. This kachina never had a base but was meant to hang from the walls and still retains its cotton neck rope for hanging. Measuring 11” x 7”.
