An absolutely beautiful Sun Kachina, hand carved by the late Ron Duwyenie. 

The spirit of the Sun lies in the Sun or Tawa (Dawa) Kachina. The Sun Kachina usually carries a spruce tree in his left hand and a bell in his right. When he appears in the Mixed Dance he caries a flute in his left hand, and is rarely impersonated. The Sun Kachina has many different stories relating to his relationship with people, animals, and monsters. Strikingly, the Sun Kachina does not appear in the major ceremonies

Ron Duwyenie learned how to carve by watching his relatives and friends. He was mainly taught by his father, Joseph Duwyenie. Ron began carving in 1980. Ron likes to change his style of carving a little because he wants his Kachinas to be different than his father's. Although one can see many similarities between his Kachinas and his father's, the way Ron paints and details his Kachinas is what sets them apart. Ron loves to carve and paint. He was born on May 5, 1965 in Keams Canyon, Arizona. Ron is a member of the Grease wood Clan of the Hopi Tribe.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the bottom of the base "Ron Duwyenie". If you would like to see a picture of the signature on the bottom of the base or more pictures of the doll please let us know. We are PROUD to bring you another amazing Kachina Doll!

    The size of these earrings are wide and extra long. I'm over whelmed by the art that made these beautiful earrings.

    All I can say is excellent. Ordered a Silver Braclet with a black onyx stone and 3 days later the stone fell out. I called and then sent it back and they replaced the stone for free. They didn't ask me a bunch of questions, just told me to send it and they would repair it. they did and it looks great.
