Carved by Hopi artist Troy Nash, this beautiful, traditional kachina doll depicts a Morning Singer. In Hopi culture, the Morning Singer appears on rooftops and sings to awaken the people of the village. In this iteration, the morning singer holds a bell in one hand and seems to be holding on to within the tree in front of him on the opposite side. One of his feet is lifted off the piece’s cottonwood root base, as if he’s stepping forward. Feathers protrude from behind the Morning Singer’s head and rest atop his head as well, while his face is painted turquoise with black eyes and cloud and rain patterns appear along his cheeks in turquoise, red and yellow. The morning singer’s clothing is painted vibrantly in red, turquoise, black, yellow, and green, finishing the piece beautifully. 8 1/4″ tall x 3 1/2″ wide x 3 1/8″ deep.
