Native American Hopi Carved Corn Boy Plant Katsina Sculpture by Virgil Long

Corn Katsinam (Qaokatsina) are the most common of the plant personators. The Corn Katsinam appear during winter kiva dances and springtime plaza dances. Several types of Corn Katsinam represent the different varieties of corn given as presents during performances. These Katsinam come in the four colors of corn (the four directional colors--red, yellow, blue and white). Sometimes they have ears of corn painted on their masks; other times they have spots painted on their bodies that represent kernals of corn. This wonderful sculpture has a Sunface peeking out from the Corn Boy's manta.
