Vintage Hopi Carved 22" SOYAL Winter Solstice Kachina Doll Peter Shelton Jr c70s
For your consideration is this sensational authentic Hopi hand carved Soyal kachina katsina doll by Hopi master carver Peter Shelton Jr.
This particular kachina (katsina) was carved in the mid 1970s by Peter Shelton Jr. It is a significant piece, towering 22" tall. He is completely hand carved and then adorned with feathers on his headdress and fur around his neck. He also has yarn tied to his chest and his knees. He has a rattle (made from wood) and switches in his hands. This is a beautiful piece and it has a wonderfully powerful presence. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
A truly wonderful older piece!
* The Soyal Kachina carries the symbol of the Soyal Ceremony - four long swtiches with feathers dangling. Soyal is the celebration of Winter Solstice. The Soyal Kachina arrives in December and signals the beginning of a new Katsina Season. He is responsible for opening the Kivas for the Katsinam to return to. He is also called the Return Katsina. *
