Native American Hopi Carved Mudhead as Owl Katsina Doll

Description
Native American Hopi Carved Mudhead as Owl Katsina Doll by Dominic East
The Mudhead (Koyemsi) leads the racers into the village and challenges villagers in contests to prove their strength. During the rests in a dance, Mudheads may engage in games with the boys and girls in the audience. At other times, only a single Mudhead may appear as a drummer for a group. Should a dancer not have the proper mask or be late in arriving, he can easily become a Mudhead by donning that mask. These Katsinam appear in almost every Hopi dance. This Mudhead decided to don the ears of an Owl and pretend he was a warrior as he carries his yucca whip and bow. A very cool representation of the unique ways in which the Hopi show their sense of humor.
