Very Large Vintage Hopi Kachina / Katsina Doll Pachavu Hú' Kachina
Antique American Indian Art, LLC. Four of these kachinas appear during the Powamu and inspect the bean plants on the last four days of the Powamu Ceremony. It is their duty to guard the bean plants, and if they are damaged, they may whip all members of the offending kiva. Likewise they check to see that no members of the kivas are lying down. If the are, it may adversely affect the growth of the beans, and that would be a poor omen for the approaching season. As everyone desires the coming season of growth to be a success, they try to make the bean crop in the kiva as perfect as possible. Kachinas: a Hopi Artist's Documentary.
