An absolutely gorgeous Sun Kachina, hand carved by Joseph 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.

Joseph Duwyenie is an experienced carver. Carving is a family tradition that was taught to him by his father, and like his father, he has passed it on to his sons. Joeseph started to carve in 1970. He has a distinctive style in the way that he carves the feathers and wings of his Kachinas. He also likes to change the style of colors on each Kachina that he makes. Joe enjoys the time he takes to carve and paint each Kachina doll.

This Kachina Doll is made of cottonwood root and is signed on the bottom of the base "Joe 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! Dolls like this one are the reason we are the #1 NATIVE AMERICAN ART SELLER!
