Kachina Collection of Lee Amaral. He collected these little Hopi dolls while traveling in the South West US. Kachinas are carved from cotton wood which is considered to be quite soft and light weight. The surface is usually refined and smooth except when texture is necessary. Each doll is usually meticulously hand painted using natural colored dyes. Many are also decorated with feathers and other remnants from nature. Dolls were traditionally given to girls by male family members at bean planting and home dance ceremonies during the summer. The most important use of the Kachina is to teach children aspects of Hopi religion, beliefs that is rooted in the forces of nature.
