A traditional sunface is depicted in this vibrant kachina doll carved by hand by Hopi artist John Poleahla. The large piece features brightly painted face and body, the traditional sunface painted in turquoise, red, yellow and black, with surrounding feathers featuring brown and black. The body of the sunface mimics the colors along the face, with red, turquoise and yellow along the body and arms, the sunface’s hands holding a flower and rattle. The sunface’s sash is painted in red, green, black, purple, blue, and white in various geometric patterns, while its legs and moccasins are painted in turquoise, yellow, and red, one foot slightly in front of the other and lifted slightly off the piece’s base. The Sunface represents warmth, shelter for the old, bright future, and playfulness for the young. 14″ tall x 5 1/2″ wide x 4 1/2″ deep.
