Antique Native American Hopi Carved Cold Bringing Woman Katsina Doll
Antique Native American Hopi Carved Cold Bringing Woman (Horo Mana or Yohozro Wuhti) Katsina Doll by Tom Collateta
Cold Bringing Woman (Horo Mana or Yohozro Wuhti) appears on First Mesa during the Powamuya. She carries bundles of reeds which are used as traditional combs in her hand to muss up peoples' hair when she appears with Nuvak'chin, her grandson. As her name implies, she brings the whiteness of winter. This particular doll is fully carved and then dressed in pile-lined fabric with a deerskin cape. She wears a white handwoven sash. A wonderful older piece by Tom Collateta.
