Native American Hopi Carved Longhair Katsina Sculpture

Description
Native American Hopi Carved Longhair Katsina Sculpture by Richard Gorman
The Longhair (Angak'china) is originally from Zuni Pueblo. Long Hair appears at most Hopi Mesas. He wears his hair loose on his back to represent falling rain. These Katsinam appear in a group and sing a very powerful melodious song which may be one of the reasons that they are such favorites. They often appear at the Home Dance (Niman). Their purpose is to bring rain, and it is said that they seldom dance without the appearance of a soft gentle rain to help the crops grow. This sweet sculpture has a Grandmother as well as corn and a tablita representing rain clouds. A really nice, simple piece by Richard.
