Hopi Deer Kachina Doll, c.1960

This Hopi kachina doll dates to about 1960, and depicts the deer kachina. The doll is traditionally-carved from cottonwood root, and is mounted on a custom stand, but could easily be removed for hanging on a wall. The deer kachina holds a staff in front of him, representing the legs of a deer. In general, he is thought to represent a prayer for the abundance of deer. This example has nicely detailed, realistic looking antlers. The doll measures 10” height and is in good condition.
