Description

Hopi clowns and mudheads have long been seen as a comic relief during dance festivities. The clowns playfully draw the ire of the traditional figures and the mudheads find their seat at the bottom of the totem pole. Here, we see a lovely carving of that playful yet mean sppirited relationship clowns tend to have with other figures as this clown holds his watermelon out of reach of the shorter mudhead. The piece is beautifully carved and wonderfully detailed. The coloring is perfectly in tune with the traditional depictions of these figures and the Kachina is signed as shown. 11 1/2” wide x 4′ tall
