Synopsis:

Mischievous, roguish, or kind spirits of nature represented by handmade children’s dolls, known as kachinas, are explored in this colorful volume in the context of the Hopi and Zuñi Native American cultures of New Mexico and Arizona. The study covers their origins, the religious practices surrounding them, their creator’s carving styles, restoration, ornamentation, and a chapter on the world’s oldest known kachina. Illustrating the Western culture’s fascination with the strong suggestive power of these figurines, this investigation also delves into their form within the context of ritual celebrations, during which they are embodied by masked and costumed dancers. This edition is written in both English and French.

About the Author: Eric Geneste is an expert in art objects, approved by the European Chamber of Expert-Advisors in fine art, specializing in Native American art. Eric Mickeler is a specialist in tropical ornithology, recognized by the European Chamber of Consultants in Oeuvres of Art for his expertise on the Native American cultures of North America. He is a natural history consultant for Sotheby's.
