Here is a nice example of a well made and old (c1940) CLASSIC Rt. 66 RAIN CLOUD or OMAU-U HOPI KACHINAwhich is in excellent condition for age - see pics! This Kachina was made by an expert Hopi maker (Sun Symbol Clan).
This is a fine looking Kachina, with a quality paint job and expert carving. He is made from solid Cottonwood Tree Wood, standing about 7 1/4" tall, and about 4" wide at Tableta. There is some very minor wear as expected from age/use(minor wear/paint/feather loss / stains) - yet in Excellent Conditionoverall for age and displays very well!
The Kachinas are spirits who live in the San Francisco Peaks (an "extinct" volcano) near Flagstaff, Arizona, they come down at certain times of the year to interact in their various forms with the Hopi People on the three ancient Mesa Pueblos. You can visit the Hopi Mesas to see them dance in their human form, there is even a hotel there now - see the Hopi Website!
The body is carved from a single piece of the traditional Cottonwood - a tree that grows in washes and canyons where water is more consistent. The OMAU-U is seldom carved and considered a rare and collectible carved and painted by a master Hopi Rt. 66 Kachina carver/maker.
Excellent condition for age and a true Collector's item!!!!
