Original paintings by Cliff Bahnimptewa. Beautiful illustrations of 237 different Kachinas. Complete with a new index, this edition brings definitive text up-to-date and is easier to use than ever before.

Since 1973, carvers and collectors as well as museum curators have turned to Kachinas: A Hopi Artists Documentary as their primary source for information about Kachinas. For more than twenty-five years, this book has remained the most interesting, colorful, and comprehensive authority on the subject. The quality of the art and scholarship that resulted remains one of the most highly regarded resources for Hopi kachinas. It is without question the best-selling publication of any part of the Heard Museum's collection.

From the Jacket:

The Hopi Kachina constellation is varied and complicated, and each element has a distinct and specific role. Pivotal in the daily lives of the Hopi people, Kachina spirits bring rain and associated benefits in return for corn pollen, prayer fathers, and other ritual offerings and activities.

The commentary that details these traditions was compiled by Barton Wright, who is recognized as the foremost authority on Kachinas. Cliff Bahnimptewa's meticulous paintings illustrate the 237 kachinas discussed in the book, and reflect the Hopi tradition handed down to him though many generations.
