A’shiwi ClownAntonio Gasper
This playful kachina is one we have had for a while (since 2003 to be exact!), but he has yet to make his public debut.
Titled “Clown” by the artist, this kachina has a smile on his face, and a slingshot in his hand. His other hand, which is raised somewhat menacingly over his head, is holding a bat.
Clown Kachinas are the tricksters and jesters, keeping spectators at the dances in line. This fanciful clown is certainly ready to perform his role!
Carved from a piece of dead cottonwood root, and painted with acrylic paints, this clown is ready to dance his way into your heart!
