Route 66 Kachina with Goggles

SOLD

American Indian Artist

Hand-carved and painted 1950s Route 66 Kachina with goggle-like painted face decoration and great, rare colors.

During this time tourists traveled the Southwest from California to the East Coast via the rural highway Route 66.

They found native peoples all along the way who were happy to sell their arts and crafts and spread their culture.

Kachinas often represent the deities of Pueblo peoples in the southwest United States and they are honored in these works of art. 
 
Originally never meant to touch the ground, these carved and painted wooden dolls are hung by the neck with a cord of leather. This one can be hung by the provided leather cord.
 
George found this doll at a flea market in Washington on one of his trips exploring the countryside.  He was drawn to the distressed paint and organic nature of the twisting body, that follows the shape of the cottonwood root it was carved from.  He hangs in in his entryway so he is reminded of the grounding spirituality it represents.
