kachina

kachina (ke-chê´ne), among PUEBLO peoples, the spirit of the life forces. Elaborately costumed tribesmen, impersonating kachinas, visit Pueblo villages early in the year. They internal linkdance, sing, and give gifts to children. Dolls that the internal linkHopi and internal linkZUÑI carve and dress like the dancers are also called kachinas.

kachina

The end of all Hopi ceremonialism will come when a "Kachina" removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated children [the general public]. For a while there will be no more ceremonies, no more faith. Then Oraibi will be rejuvenated with its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi life.

The very same kachina doll sits today on the mantle in internal linkOscar Janiger's living room, under a particularly stunning framed pair of before-and-after renderings of it. Painted by Fortune illustrator Frank Murdoch, the picture on the left is of draftsmanlike quality, a perfect "representational" image. Its internal linkacid-inspired twin couldn't be more different - awhirl with color and asplash with motion, its planes and curves lurching in multiple directions. But it is recognizably the same kachina doll. And if anything, its colors more accurately capture the doll's brilliant hues. (Janiger has saved all the pieces from the study, consistently declining offers from the artists to buy back their work. Several years ago, he mounted a successful gallery exhibition of the acid art.)

Ya, Tex heart-burn had it down to a science way before Cal came to internal linkphoenix.  Tex would even give you your choice of a shot gun, cowbow hat, or 1000 pounds of fertilizer (good ol' Arizona bull...) for every car, truck, or kachina doll purchased by man or beast.

Watching ol' Tex was real good internal linkentertainment while growing up in Eloy.  Not much else to do bu admire the bull.
