Native American Hopi Carved Planet Fearsome Katsina Sculpture
Native American Hopi Carved Planet Fearsome Katsina Sculpture by Prinston Collateta
Planet or Star Katsina (Sotoknang or Sotuknangu) controls the movement of the stars and planets. He is a fearsome Katsina who can strike people with lightning, scattering them about in pieces. He then puts them back together, but when he does, they are put together all wrong. This is a wonderful piece by Prinston showing someone in transition to the next world. This being is painted in dark colors and is climbing up the kiva ladder to join the Planet Katsina as another cloud being.
