Navajo carver Bertha Wood, known for her whimsical, trouble-making koshares, created this adorable piece out of cottonwood. A single koshare kachina is seated atop a cottonwood base, holding a blue book, labeled “book” in one hand, and a watermelon slice in the other. A cut watermelon rests between the koshare’s legs, while another whole watermelon sits off to one side. The piece is finished with black leather accents on arms, legs, and to finish its hat, while the hat and body are painted with black stripes. 5 3/4″ tall x 4″ wide x 5 1/2″ deep.
