Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches
Tasaf, or Dasup is the Navajo Kachina. No, not one of those Kachinas, the ones made by Navajos getting on the commercial bandwagon, but a true Hopi Kachina representing the Navajo spirit.
There are several reasons this is one of my most favorite Kachinas to paint. When I left my job with McGee's Indian Den and Museum in Scottsdale to work as a trader on the Navajo Reservation, at the Greasewood Springs Trading Post, near Lukaichukai, my boss, Bill McGee, gave me a beautiful Dasup Kachina as a going away present. It remains the star of my Kachina collection.
Later, when I began painting full-time, that was the first Kachina I ever painted. I have since painted a variety of different Tasaf Kachinam in many different ways, and in watercolor, acrylics, and, of course, oils.
This is the latest, but definitely not the last of my Navajo Katsintihu paintings.
