Katsina Dolls: Contemporary
+Add category to My Preferences
A preview of a selection of mid-twentieth-century Hopi and Zuni katsina dolls, most dating from around 1920 to 1950 and varying in size. Some are identifiable to a specific carver but most are of an age where the carver's name is no longer available. The katsinas represent the pantheon of gods from Zuni and Hopi Pueblos.
Adobe Gallery features select works from a variety of carvers whose work shows careful attention to detail and traditional values. All dolls are carved from cottonwood root.
