Pot Carrier Man Kachina / Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches
I PAINT KACHINAS BECAUSE:
they are there.
they are beautiful.
they are a part of me.
they are timeless and enduring.
they are intriguing and mysterious.
they are powerful and evocative and alive.
they are carved and textured and painted and aged.
they are feathered and masked and costumed or unclothed.
they are primordial and sophisticated and speak of other worlds.
they are carriers of messages and of prayers and bringers of rain and life.
they are subtle and complex, terrifying and comforting, animal, man, spirit, cloud.
they are hope and fear, promise and admonition, deliverance and instruction, comfort and song.
they are of the earth and of the sky and of the air and of the water that flows through every thing.
