The Kachina carvings were originally created to function as tools for the young to aid in their religious training. The early carvers imparted not only beauty to their figured but also, through their artistry, distinct individual character. These figures have the power to draw us in with their mesmerizing lifelike presence that is both stirring and naturalistic. Oil on Canvas, 24" x 16"
