Antique Native American Hopi Carved Hemis Katsina Doll by David Phillips

Hemis Katsina appears at the Home-Going (Niman) ceremony in late summer (July). He is originally from Jemez Pueblo, where he is an important figure in bringing rain prior to harvest. He is the Katsina who brings the grown corn to the people, ensuring a good harvest. This particular doll was carved by Hopi artist David Phillips in the early 1970s. It is a classic larger katsina from the time period. His tablita is crowned with feathers and corn tassels. He wears a green wool yarn (spruce) ruff around his neck and carries some spruce in his hand. He has yarn around his chest which is decorated with friendship signs, and he has yarn tied on his wrist and knee. A painted red felt sash wraps his waist and down his right side. A really wonderful older "Going Home" katsina.
