Kachina Mask in the Hopi Style, in wood
Kachinas are spirits in the mythology of the Hopi Indians of Arizona, in the southwest of the United States.
Spirits of fire, rain, snakes, or even playful and mischievous spirits, which are benevolent or evil... A sort of inventory of the visible and invisible worlds.
Six months a year, during ritual festivities, these spirits are incarnated in masked and costumed dancers.
