Hopi Shalako

K807 - Hopi Shalako - Artist: Cimmaron Grover - Description: Cimmaron Grover is one of the younger Hopi carvers with 10 years experience. He prefers to carve the old style Kachinas. He lives in Pollaca, 3nd Mesa on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona. The Shalako is a winter ceremony held to pray for rain, good health of the people and for the propagation of plants and animals. The Shalako Kachinas are the Giant Couriers of the Rainmakers. They have no arms and the masks of these ten-foot figures are carried on poles by their impersonators. It is beautifully hand painted, accented with carved feathers. These are a very different form of carvings. The base is the Native American design for Rain. Out of the rain grows tadpoles which wind up the two pole legs until they reach the Shalako figure, tadpoles represent fertility. What is really unique about this Shalako is the long pole like legs that are hand painted with the colors of red, green and gold. This Kachina measures 18 1/2 tall, 4 wide and 3 deep. This Native American creation comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
