Blue Star Kachina Doll

Unmistakable styling and accuracy by one of the elite masters of Hopi Katsinam representation; Wilmer's knowledge and patience as a Human Being is exemplified in his lifelong body of award-winning work.

The actual version of this Kachina, not a Kachina doll, has never been seen in the villages and its very existance or potential existance is debated. The Hopi themselves offer differing thoughts, opinions or they are simply non-commital about it. Some say that if there is a Blue Star Kachina, its emergence signifies the close of the this time--The 4th World.  

Cottonwood root, acrylic paint, knife carved.

  • 13 1/2 inches total height, including the base of 2 1/4 inches.
  • 3 3/4 inches diameter at the base.
