Route 66 Vintage Kachina Doll $160
Hand-carved and painted Kachina doll from the Route 66 era of American History.
During this time tourists traveled the Southwest from California to the East Coast via the rural highway Route 66.
They found native peoples all along the way who were happy to sell their arts and crafts and spread their culture.
Kachinas are the masked gods of the New Mexico and Arizona American Indians and they are honored with seasonal dances in the villages and mesa-top pueblos that dot the Southwest.
Traditionally these never touched the ground and were instead hung by a cord from a wall. This one follows that history and will not stand on its own.
George found this doll at a flea market in Washington on one of his trips exploring the countryside. He was drawn to the distressed paint and organic nature of the twisting body, that follows the shape of the cottonwood root it was carved from. He hangs in in his entryway so he is reminded of the grounding spirituality it represents…
Large Antique Navajo Rug in Yei Pictorial style from Lukachukai weaving region of the Navajo Nation, famous for this type of design.
46” x 71”
Beautiful natural grey ground with dramatic Rainbow Yeibichai surrounding the four standing figures of masked warriors, parading in ceremonial regalia for their yearly healing ritual. They carry staffs of feathers and adorn themselves with earrings and necklaces of their finest jewelry.
Bright orange aniline dye was used for the wool in some of skirts, shirts, and even in the legs of one of the figures. This color has not run or faded, quite rare indeed. The detail is incredible, especially being these are made from memory without any plans or drawings. From the feathers on their heads, to their shapely calves and stunning condition.
The designs for these weaving come from sacred sand paintings that are destroyed after each use. At first they were frowned upon when woven into permanent rugs such as these by the medicine men that practice this ancient religion. The maker will often include a spirit line on the border of the tapestry so that any sacred energy can escape.
This rug is so precious it is usually only hung up. The back side shows a strip of linen that has been added for secure attachment to the wall. George’s parents always displayed this masterpiece in their family room and he hopes to do the same in the home he makes with Ruby…
