Native American Hopi Carved Hemis Katsina Doll by Leo Lacapa

Hemis Katsina appears at the Home-Going (Niman) ceremony in late summer. He is originally from Jemez Pueblo, where he is an important figure in bringing rain prior to harvest. He is the Katsina who brings the grown corn to the people, ensuring a good harvest. This is a wonderful carving by Leo, who carved the tiny Qoqooqlo flat Katsinam as well as the cattails and a watermelon as adornment.
