Item Details
Description
This is an excellent Palhik Mana or Butterfly Maiden Kachina Doll from the Hopi Pueblo Native American Indians dating to circa 1920’s. The piece shows the Palhik Mana (Palik Mana), also referred to as the Butterfly Maiden, a kachina spirit in Hopi mythology. This example is carved of solid cottonwood with natural paints showing crescent feet and square in-turned hands. The piece has a wonderful hand carved and painted design with plume feathers at the four corners of her tableta (headdress), which represents the rain clouds and fertility. The top of the tableta has been repaired, but the piece shows well preserved condition for its 100-year age. The piece has a twine tie around its neck, which holds an old collection tag reading, “Hopi Kachina / Palhik Mana”. Provenance: From a private museum collection in the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region of France. The piece was collected from Second Mesa, Arizona. The piece measures 7.5” H by 4.75” W including the plume feathers.
