Kachina Sipikine or Salimboya Doll

The Zuni-Warrior

In the Hopi style.

Dimensions: 36 cm x 12 cm x 9 cm.



The Kachina mask represented here is white, contrasting with the black used to underline its eyes and which decorates the nose; and with the feathers forming the hairdo. The ears were replaced with a circular symbol of flowering. The mouth forms a long tube. The kilt has two specificities: first of all, it was added; and it was crafted with a matter that is different of the one used on the body: fabric.



From the Zuni, where these pieces are named Salimboya, the Sipikine is particularly appreciated by the Hopi, which explains the number of Kachina dolls representing it.



Articulated arms. Very nice state of preservation.
