Hopi Dance Maiden / Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches / Daily Painting #1389

As you can see, there are some changes going on here; new layout, new and revised menu, updated pages, and that’s just the beginning.

More changes and fine tuning are on the way. Stay tuned…

Meanwhile, today’s painting is of a Hopi doll, but it is not a Kachina. Instead, it represents a female dancer, probably a Butterfly Maiden. Female Kachinas are always represented by male dancers, and wear masks. Social dancers are female, with painted faces and usually wear tabletas.

  1. Hey John, The new HOME PAGE is very interesting. I like seeing all the dailies and it is easy to scroll back and see earlier paintings.

  2. In a way she does resemble a Kachina. Glad you explained it. Love your new home page. I know it will be even better when you get it done. The Hopi seems to be waiting for others to dance with. I think they always danced in a group or groups. She is very pretty. Love the colors of the leaves in her hair.
