GRANDMOTHER KACHINA, SONY SEEKLETS

SKU: M18
$225Price
Hopi, Grandmother Katsina/Kachina (HaHai-i-Wuhti) carved by Sony Seeklets; 9 1/2 inches tall including feathers. The katsina is carrying a Ru-kun-pi which is an instrument that makes a rasping sound and is used to keep the rhythm of the katsina songs. The ru-kun-pi is a decorated gourd which is placed on the ground and serves as the resonator. The katsina using the instrument holds the notched stick (which rests on the gourd) in one hand and strokes a sheep scapula back and forth over the notches with the other. The grating sound that is produced represents the croaking of frogs as they emerge when the rains have fallen. The gourds are painted with images of clouds, rain, and lightning, all of which are important aspects in Hopi life.
