Native American Hopi Carved Eagle Great Spirit Katsina Doll
Native American Hopi Carved Eagle Great Spirit Katsina Doll by Nate Jacob
Eagle (Kwahu) dances to increase the number of eagles and is a spiritual figure to the Hopi. He is treated with honor at all times as, among other responsibilities, the Eagle is the messenger between the people and their spirit guides. This is an amazing carving by Nate Jacob, who did this piece in 1999. The fluid motion of the wings and the Eagle caught in that moment just before he takes off to communicate with the Great Spirits are quite remarkable. An amazing and beautifully done carving.
14.5 in. tall; wingspan 14.5 in.
