Navajo Made Snake Kachina Doll
The Snake Dancer (Chusona) is rare and his ceremony is considered to be one of the most sacred. When a snake is found, this Kachina captures the snake and dances with it, usually in his mouth. When the dance is completed, the Kachina returns the snake to its home and sends a message with the snake to Mother Earth requesting that She grant their wishes. He is not a Kachina.
This Navajo Kachina is authenticated by the artist’s signature on the bottom of the stand.
