Hopi Hú Kachina Doll c.1960s

This is a Hopi kachina doll from the early 1960s depicting Hú. Hú is a whipper kachina/katsina who is known for whipping children as part of initiation during ceremonies in the kiva (whipping is a gesture of purification). He is defined by his bulging eyes, beard, horns, and paint. This fierce kachina doll has a big presence at 13 1/2" height. The doll stands on its own but is also perfect for hanging.
