Description

A guaranteed smile-maker, that bridges traditional kachina carving and folk art. “Paqua”, the frog kachina is a water creature, and so highly appreciated in the desert culture of the Hopi.

Here, he is represented as a ceremonial dancer with a froggy headdress and froggy-green body. The rest of him is human: toes and fingers, kilt, bracelet, heishi necklace and ruff; all the accoutrements.

With an amusing personal touch, the artist has the frog/man catching a last minute snack on his long red tongue!

Accurate representation doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, says this artist. Keep yourself smiling all year, with this unique kachina.
