Native American Made Eagle Great Spirit Katsina Doll
Native American Made Eagle Great Spirit Katsina Doll by Sammie Walker (Navajo-Hopi)
Eagle (Kwahu) dances to increase the number of eagles and is a spiritual figure to the Hopi. He is treated with honor at all times as, among other responsibilities, the Eagle is the messenger between the people and their spirit guides. This is a wonderful piece that is created in a style that is unusual today. Very few of the artists make the Native American dolls this way. The action is wonderful and the carving, painting and details are very accurate.
