Angak'china, the Long-Haired Kachina, is a bringer of gentle rains and flowers. He is the Kokokshi of Zuni, and yet he appears in almost all of the pueblos from the Hopi to the Rio Grande. His songs are melodic and the dance a beautiful one to see in the springtime, and is a favorite of the Hopi. The dancers' long hair worn loose down the back resembles the falling rain with the eagle breast plumes rising like clouds above it. These kachinas are occasionally used for the Niman Ceremony on First Mesa.
Many varieties of this kachina exist: Barefoot, Bounding, Navajo, Tewa, Lightning, to name the most frequently carved. He is very impressively expressed here by Nelson Kuwanvama, of Moencopi, a creative and very talented carver, with a reputation for beautifully naturalistic and sensitively carved Kachina dolls.
This lovely doll stands 10 inches tall, and is beautifully carved from Cottonwood root. This is a true one piece carving except for the red top feather and items in his hands. The figure is shown in an amazingly somber and menacing pose. He would be a great addition to any Kachina doll collection, created by a recognized carver and an always popular subject.
It is approximately 9.5 tall, and about 3.0 inches wide and deep at the base. This policy helps us avoid fraud and offer low prices to our valued customers.
