Hopi White Bear Kachina Doll
This Hopi White Bear Kachina Doll was handmade by Milton Howard. Milton, a local resident who frequents our shop, transformed local cottonwood thru patience & paint to a sculpture of superb craftsmanship. Captured in mid-step, this spirit dancer is seen in Mixed dances and is said to be powerful enough to cure illness. From the black bear at his feet to the intricate helmet of fur on his head, the detail is awesome! The colorful jacla necklace, knee fringe, decorated breech cloth & snarling snout with protruding red tongue are exquisite. About 5-3/4" tall, including the base & 4” wide (depending on display angle), this Hopi White Bear Kachina Doll is signed & named on the base.
