Hopi Jocelyn Vote Uhuhu (Scavenger) Kachina Doll

Hopi Jocelyn Vote Uhuhu (Scavenger) Kachina Doll


Artist: Jocelyn Vote

1 in stock


Created by late Hopi carver Jocelyn Vote, this stunning kachina doll depicts “Uhuhu,” the Scavenger.  This is a rare figure carved by an even rarer artist, as Jocelyn was only one of a handful of female carvers from the Hopi tribe, and arguably the most prolific.  Uhuhu is said to be a looter of the ruins of Awatowi, and in this piece, he holds a knife in one hand and walking stick in another to aid in his conquests.  Uhuhu stands atop a round cottonwood root base, one foot lifted and appearing to move slightly in front of the other, as if he is walking.  His head is turned slightly to one side, face painted orange and black eyes protruding, with orange, black and white feathers atop his head.  One ear, painted red, features a very detailed feather, while the opposite ear, painted turquoise, showcases four additional more simplistic feathers that mimics those atop his head.  He is carved with a gorgeous feather shawl over his shoulders, and his garments are painted in multiple colors including turquoise, red, blue, green, black, and white.  Uhuhu is finished with a basket strapped to his back that includes items presumably found in his scavenging, including a doll, a corn cob, a ball, a piece of prickly pear cactus, and a rattle.  12 1/2″ tall x 4″ wide x 4″ deep.
