Hopi Badger Kachina
A traditional yet vibrant Hopi Badger Kachina completely and traditionally handmade by artist Brian Smith of the Hopi and Laguna tribes.
This piece is hand carved out of traditional cottonwood root and painted in traditional materials such as mineral paint.
Amazing craftsmanship from Brian on this Badger, from the intricately carved feather headdress down to the base.
The Badger Kachinas are revered as both healing Kachinas and efficient hunters, aiding medicine men. Their tracks symbolize strength and well-being.
