First Mesa Kachina is said to encourage growth in crops, particularly corn. This rendition by Navajo carver Harrison Jones is made of cottonwood and set on a pine base, and features various vibrant colors and other adornment. The head is painted turquoise, with black eyes, and is bordered on each side by a large, white tableta, which is painted with sun and cloud/rain/lightning patterns. These, of course, speak to the encouragement in growth of crops. The remainder of the body is painted black and white, and the kachina holds a black feather in each hand. Its neck and the top of its head feature brown fur, while the lower half of the body is covered in black and brown leather. 8 3/8″ tall x 4 3/4″ wide.
