Antique Native American Hopi Carved Broadface Guard Katsina Doll by Everett Curley

The Broadface Katsina (Wuyak-kuita) is among the guards who prevent any transgression on the path of the Katsinam. Often called the Broadface Whipper Katsina, he carries yucca fronds that he uses frequently as whips, particularly on clowns, who are terrified of him. He is an important figure in the winter Bean Dance (Powamuya) procession. This Broadface by Everett is from the 1970s and shows the leather trim with shells and the real pheasant feathers. A really nice older piece and very cleanly done.
