Kachina I

Kachina dolls and costumes. The Kachina are the maksed spirits of the Hopi Native American people, representing deities, nature spirits and the deceased. Except for especially old dolls, most of them date from the late 18th century onwards. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Hopi started making them more to appeal to the white man's aesthetic snesibilities (and wallet).
