MINIATURE KACHINA DOLL COLLECTION

Kachinas were made primarily to illustrate symbols and symbolic paraphernalia used in the personation of the gods, a form of artistic expression. The Kachina represent mortal men personifying the gods as seen in festivals or ceremonies. The Kachinas are spirits of the ancients a supernatural responsible for a wide variety of religious and social activities.
These Kachina Dolls were made in the second half of the 20th century. They depict American Indian Kachina dancers, which in turn represent spirits and forces important to the traditional and modern Native American way of Life.
