Sunface (Tawa) Katsina represents the spirit of the sun. This leader of ceremonies brings warmth, shelter for the old, a bright future, and playfulness for the young and is considered one of the more powerful Katsinam because the Sun is thought to be the brightest and largest of all the stars and essential to life and growth. This is a wonderful piece that is created in a style that is unusual today. Very few of the artists make the Native American dolls this way. The carving, painting and details are wonderful on this piece. ~Sammie Walker (Hopi/Navajo)
