Considered to be the mother of all kachina, the Crow Mother is depicted here in a single piece of cottonwood root and carved by hand by Hopi artist Wilmer Kaye. The Crow Mother stands atop a round double base, one foot wearing a white moccasin sticking out of a flowing skirt painted black, red, green and blue, as if she’s taking a step forward. She holds a basket at her waist in both hands, which appears to be filled with corn, while a shawl covers both shoulders and is painted in green, black and white accents. The Crow Mother’s head is painted turquoise with black and red accents, while feathers protrude from either side of her head and rest on top. 9 5/8″ tall x 2 1/2″ wide x 2 5/8″ deep.
