Jemez carver Paul Gachupin puts his own colorful spin on pieces by adding vibrant details in feathers, leather, and paint. This Eagle Kachina doll showcases the eagle with its wings outstretched, black and red feathers attached to painted white leather along the arms. The eagle’s head is painted turquoise with black accents, while the top of its head feathers black, white, and red feathers and its beak, featuring tongue outstretched, is painted yellow and black. The eagle’s body features both black and yellow paint, while its lower half is covered in while leather painted with traditional patterns in black, red, and green. The eagle’s ankles are also surrounded by white leather, red and green string tied above and feet painted in white, red, and black. Feathers are also attached to the eagle’s back, where a sunface rests along its waist painted in turquoise, yellow, red, black, and white. The eagle is considered the ruler of the sky and the messenger to the heavens and represents strength and power. 9″ tall x 8″ wide.
