Shalako Kachina Doll - Blue Robed Butterfly - 14 InchsThis Navajo Kachina Doll "Butterfly" is called a Shalako, referring to a Native American Indian dance ceremony. This kachina doll is hand carved from a cottonwood root, with intricate etching, beautifully hand painted vibrant colors and unique patterns. This kachina doll was handcrafted by the Navajo artist T. Yazzie, stands 14 1/2 inches tall, on a 3 1/2 inch wooden base, with artist's initials on the bottom of the doll.
The Shalako dance is performed on a mesa, giving thanks for a plentiful year and abundant harvest. The artist used the root's natural bends and curves, capturing the dancer holding its robes tightly around itself as it moves in the wind on top of the mesa.
Each of these beautiful Shalako kachina dolls is a unique, one of a kind.
