The Kachinas, carriers of messages to the heavens asking for rain, productive crops, fertility, all the things of a good, simple life, are represented in these small dolls, carved from cottonwood root, and given to the children as tools for learning the intricacies of the Hopi religion. They have, over the years, also become much sought after by collectors. Their primitive, yet sophisticated design speaks to me much as African art spoke to artists such as Picasso.
