Description

Old Style Hopi Carved Coyote Clan Traditional Animal Katsina Doll by Augustine Mowa III

The story goes something like this: Spiderwoman gave Coyote a pot to take care of. Coyote was not to look inside the pot. Coyote cared for the pot for some time but was far too curious to not take a peek. So he peeks inside the pot and the inside explodes like fireworks creating the universe. Upon exploding, the blast gave the coyote his black nose and white face. The stars on his face represent the stars in the sky and the long trailing headdress represents the tail of the great comet that Coyote freed which created the Universe.
