Kachina is approximately 8" tall including a 3/8" base and is 4" wide at widest points.
The Wolf or Kweo Kachina is often times seen at the Soyohim dances accompanied by the Antelope Kachina and the Deer Kachina, who throughout the dance act very wary of the Wolf Kachina due to their relationship in nature. The Wolf Kachina usually carries a stick or branch that represents the natural cover of the trees and bushes he hides in while stalking his prey. At all times the Wolf Kachina shows his sharp teeth and long rolling tongue, which is meant to show his hunting prowess. At the end of the dance it is tradition for the tribe to offer cornmeal to the Kweo Kachina in the hopes that he will bless their next hunt.
This Kachina doll was hand crafted by Navajo artist Craig Begay.
