Katsina Clown


Kachina Clown Figurine

This Katsina Clown figure is ready to join your collection.  The artist carved it from wood. The Clown plays tricks and satirizes Hopi life by acting out and exaggerating improper behavior.  His mask features plant fiber tassels.  He holds a drum in one hand and a rattle in the other.  He wears a black and white striped outfit and boot style moccasins.  The artists signed the bottom D-29 Koshare.

Katsinas (or Kachinas) are supernatural beings in the Pueblo Indian traditions. The Pueblo tribes create Katsina dolls to give to children. Children use them to learn about the various Katsinas and not to play with.  This Clown Katsina stands just about 12″ high.  This figure came from a collection so you will see slight signs of wear.  One of a Kind!
