While on the train through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, on the way to Machu Picchu, I spotted this little guy on the banks of the Urubamba River, watching the train pass by. Or maybe he was just taking a siesta. ¿Quien sabe?

While the Kwavahu Eagle Dancer Kachina is seldom seen, and then usually in a night dance with the Koyemsim, or Mudhead Kachinas, it is nonetheless a favorite among carvers and collectors of Kachina dolls. The small feather hanging from the beak represents the breath of the Eagle, which carries the prayers of the Hopi for moisture, good crops, and abundance up to the clouds. Along with the Ogres, the Mudheads, the Wolf Kachina, and Crow Mother, the Kwavahu, or Kwa Kachina is also a favorite of mine that I have painted many times. I especially like the intimacy of this close-up version. This Kachina is also sometimes referred to as Kwa Hu or as Kwaa.
