Navajo Made Butterfly Kachina Doll
Named for the beautiful butterflies that land on flowers and herbs. Butterfly directs the Medicine Man to ingredients that can be used to make medicine. The Butterfly Kachina (Poli Mana or Palhik’ Mana) brings together unmarried men and women. During the Butterfly Social Dance, the Kachinas appear as a pair, one female and one male.
This Navajo Kachina is authenticated by the artist’s signature on the bottom of the stand.
