Miniature Kachina is approximately 4-1/2" tall including a 2" base and is 2-1/2" wide at widest points.

A form of religious folk art attributed mostly to the Hopi. The dolls are wooden images, which represent the men who dance in costume, mask and paint as kachina spirits in Hopi villages from 21st December (winter solstice) through the third week in July. Kachinas represent the supernatural, the spirit or essence of animate and inanimate objects in nature who benefit the Hopi by bringing rain for a successful planting, fertility for animals and man, cures for illnesses, justice for lawbreakers, and humor for appropriate circumstances. Authentic dolls are carved from the root of the cottonwood tree only after it has broken away.

The Chasing Star Kachina is widely recognized as the symbol of planets, stars and the heavens above. This doll is believed to posses a strong bond with the universe above, which is believed to bring protection, good fortune and a balanced alignment with the owner.

This Miniature Kachina doll was hand crafted by Navajo artist Maxine Chee. Miniature Kachina dolls will vary slightly.
