A wonderfully animated and well carved large kachina depicting a Mud Head. Purchased at Walpi during a Shalako ceremony blessing new construction in the Tewa village, nearly one hundred of these Mud Heads along with whipper and humming bird kachinas performed the ceremonies necessary to bless the new construction. Purchased in 1954, this beautiful specimen evokes the magic and unearthly presence of those must sacred Hopi beings. Complete with a small handmade linen bag for presents and a concho belt and ketoh studded with natural turquoise fragments, this handsome 13” kachina is one of the earliest carvings to sit atop a Cottonwood base.
