This is truly a Rare Find -Offered here is a Vintage late 70s - early 80s Black Ogre Kachina - This is an absolutely stunning kachina-well made-great detailing. Paint is good and bright / detailing is impeccable! Black and White Ogre kachinas - are disciplinarians of the children. This figure can be represented as black or white. Their large snouts / bulging eyes and scary demeanor help to keep children in line.
They will often carry rattles / whips or branches and if a child is misbehaving will appear closely to them - making the child think twice about acting up!

This is a very well carved kachina and is beautifully constructed with very intricate detailing. He wears traditional ceremonial garb which is kid leather / the images have been hand-painted.
