Masawu Kachina Doll, by Bradford Kaye, Hopi
Masawu (Fire and Night Being) Kachina Doll
Más áw made a promise to care for the People, if they cared for the Earth, cultivating the land carefully. Death and Life go hand in hand, as decay and fire feed the Earth for new growth, including powerful medicine flowers as carried by this kachina. Both frightening and comforting, this traveling Being is depicted to show the cycles of rebirth and as a caretaker after the transition.
