This is the page of Sakhomenewa, fine art by Hopi Artist Robert S. Albert. Here you will find pictures of my carvings of Hopi Kachina Dolls and Clowns. Because each doll is hand carved from a single piece of cottonwood, no two pieces will be exactly alike.
The Kachina doll itself is a teaching tool for the children to learn the Hopi culture. These were given to only the female members of the village. Each doll is a representation of the Kachina spirit which the Hopi people pray to. There are many different spirits that are represented. From the smallest insect such as the bee, to large mammals like the bear. Also from elements like fire, wind and snow to other people or tribes. The Hopi people believe in respecting every element of the world. That is why there are so many different Kachina spirits. Only in recent times has the Kachina doll become more of a decorative piece, and has become highly collectable.
If you have any questions about a particular piece or would like to place an order, please feel free to contact me at RAlbert@Sakhomenewa.com.
