Native American Hopi Carved Sunface Katsina Doll
Native American Hopi Carved Sunface Katsina Doll by Lester Quanimptewa
Sunface (Tawa) Katsina represents the spirit of the sun. This leader of ceremonies brings warmth, shelter for the old, a bright future, and playfulness for the young. The Sunface is considered one of the more powerful Katsinam because the Sun is thought to be the brightest and largest of all the stars and essential to life and growth. This is a wonderful Sunface by Lester showing the sun protectively holding the earth in its hands. This is an older carving from a private collection.
