Much has been written about the popular kachina dolls carved by the Hopi .

Much has been written about the popular kachina dolls carved by the Hopi Indians of northern Arizona, but little has been revealed about the artistry behind them. Now Helga Teiwes describes the development of this art form from early traditional styles to the action-style kachina dolls made popular in galleries throughout the world, and on to the kachina sculptures that have evolved in the last half of the 1980s. Unique to this book are Teiwes's description of the most recent trends in kachina doll carving and her profiles of twenty-seven modern carvers, including such nationally known artists as Alvin James Makya and Cecil Calnimptewa.

26 December 2019 at 08:00 ·. Ros is a very spiritual person who cares greatly about life, and this outlook finds expression in his carvings. He says that he takes his ‘Hopiness’ with him wherever he goes and that the meaning of his culture will always stay with him. It is his spirituality and his culture that he expresses in his work. That sentiment is clearly visible as evidenced by the beauty, spirituality and cultural influence which radiate from George’s carved Corn Dancer.

In tracing the history of the kachina doll in Hopi culture, she shows how these wooden figures have changed since carvers came to be influenced by their marketability among Anglos and how their carving has been characterized by increasingly refined techniques.

GREAT BOOK ,,,GREAT SERVICE,,,
  • Hunaya
Cecil Calnimptewa, Ronald Honyouti, Loren Phillips, Dennis Tewa and Wilmer Kaye ... they're all in this book, plus 22 other top Hopi carvers. Need I say more! Author/photographer Teiwes begins by tracing the life, history and religion of the Hopi and brings the reader to the doorstep of 1991 (the publication date). 24 color photos serve as the central focus of the book, but the final 63 pages which profile the 27 carvers is what really "makes" it. My copy is in paperback. I assume the hardback foremat is the same. Pick up a copy; you'll thoroughly enjoy it!!!
