Hopi Kachinas

H. Thompson Corn Maiden Kachina

This Hopi Corn Maiden Kachina is from the Shalako area of Northern Arizona. It was hand carved out of cottonwood and hand painted by the artist, H. Thompson, who signed this piece on the bottom. Of all the women who appear with other Kachinas, the Kachina Maiden, or Kachin' Mana, is the most prevalent. If she is carrying blue corn, she is known as the Blue Corn Maiden, similarly yellow corn, etc. She often appears in regular Kachina dances with household ware, accompanied by Long Haired Kachina. Based on this Corn Maiden’s yellow color, she’s a Yellow Corn Maiden. Her presence is a prayer for corn. She also honors Mother Earth and her continuing ability to feed her children. Placing this Kachina in your home, particularly on an altar, shows respect for the many gifts we receive each day from Mother Earth. This gentle maiden reminds us always to be thankful. By the way, a Kachina Maiden often will change her name to that of the Kachina with whom she is dancing, although her appearance does not change. This Corn Maiden Kachina measures 7-1/2" tall x 2" wide. (Click on picture for more images, and click here to learn more about Kachinas.) Tell a friend.

Red Seeves Corn Maiden Kachina

This is another original Hopi Corn Maiden Kachina created in 2000 and signed on the bottom by the artist Red Seeves (Red Sleeves?). One of the fascinating things about Kachinas is that since they are both spirits and the representations of spirits, each Hopi artist can and does create a unique interpretation of the Kachina he carves out of cottonwood and hand paints. Based on this Corn Maiden’s yellow color, she’s a Yellow Corn Maiden, as opposed to one of her “sisters”, such as a Blue Corn Maiden, etc. As stated above, a Corn Maiden’s presence is a prayer for corn and also honors Mother Earth for her bounty. This Corn Maiden Kachina measures 10-3/4" tall x just over 2" wide. (Click on picture for more images, and click here to learn more about Kachinas.) Tell a friend.

Sherman Sun Kachina

The Sun Kachina, Tawa, is a representation of the spirit of the sun. He sometimes appears with the Early Morning Kachinas (Talavai), welcoming back the sun as it rises above the horizon. The group stands on the house tops and perform their ceremonies. He also appears in several of the winter dance ceremonies. This Sun Kachina, signed by the artist Sherman, stands 11" tall x 6" wide x 4-1/2" deep. He is fully clothed. The artist has painstakingly constructed and applied a headdress consisting of both feathers and fur. His wraparound loincloth (or kilt) appears to be made from vintage oilcloth, upon which Sherman has painted typical pueblo designs. The midriff belt is composed of brightly colored yarns. The piece is further adorned with suede shoulder cuffs, with additional suede armbands on each arm and applied to hang from the bottom of the dancer’s kilt. In his right hand he holds a hand-carved Hopi rattle and in his left a large furry object which, for lack of a better phrase, we will call a pompom, itself artfully constructed of hundreds of individual pieces of yarn trimmed to give it a fur-like appearance. The painted sun face is beautifully done and oh so typically Hopi. (Click on picture for more images, and click here to learn more about Kachinas.) Tell a friend.

Jean Juan Mudhead Kachina

The Koyemsi, or Mudhead Kachina, is a multi-faceted clown borrowed from the Zuni, but he’s seen in most Hopi ceremonies. Mudhead Kachinas drum, dance, play games with the audience, and may act as announcers for events. They often give prizes or rewards for the races and guessing games they organize. The term "mudhead" comes from their masks which have mud applied to them. Most of the time they accompany other Kachina, and may appear as a chorus. On First Mesa, and possibly other villages, their songs are in Zuni. During the rests in a dance, they may engage in games with the boys and girls in the audience. At other times, only a single Mudhead may appear as a drummer for a group. Should a dancer not have the proper mask or be late in arriving, he can easily become a Mudhead by donning that mask. This dancing Koyemsi (Mudhead) Kachina came from the estate of an anthropologist who collected Kachinas throughout the 20th Century on many trips to Arizona and New Mexico. This one always commanded a top shelf display in her great room! His clothing and decorations are extremely well done, as are the proportions of the carving. The artist, Jean Juan, dressed his creation in real leather, painted with authentic designs, and even added real shells as special belt and boot adornments. He holds a feather in each hand and wears four more feathers on his head. The piece stands 11-1/2" tall from its base to the top of Mudhead’s feather and is 6" wide x 5-1/4" deep. Signed on the bottom of the base by the artist. (Click on picture for more images, and click here to learn more about Kachinas.) Tell a friend.
