1 in stock


Depicting a traditional sunface, which represents warmth, shelter for the old, bright future, and playfulness for the young, this exquisite kachina doll was carved by Hopi artist Brendan Kayquoptewa.  The piece is carved from a single piece of cottonwood root, the face painted vibrantly in turquoise, red, blue, yellow, black, and white.  Intricate and detailed feathers surround the face, their edges painted in a darker brown than the original wood, while a shawl is draped over the sunface’s shoulders and painted in black, green, red, yellow, turquoise, and white designs along the bottom and just below the neck.  The sunface holds a rattle in one hand and a flower with turquoise tips in the other, while the clothing covering its bottom half is painted in red, black, and green geometric designs.  The sunface stands atop a double base, one foot lifted off the ground as if taking a step forward, while one wrist features a cuff with a detailed corn stalk pattern and the other, a turquoise bangle.  10 1/2″ tall x 4″ wide x 3 1/2″ deep.
