A lovely example of the elegance of this major artist’s work. Nephew of the great innovator Charles Loloma, he early learned to see beauty and art everywhere, and to develop his own style. His awards are so numerous, it takes pages to list them.This female kachina is huddled in her blanket, which drapes gracefully and realistically about her figure, tightly wrapped against the cold. The hem of her manta (dress) curves over her white deerskin moccasin. Her long hair is beautifully depicted as it cascades down her back. Notice the exquisitely subtle sculpting of her arm; its form suggested beneath the blanket. In her detailed hand she holds a rasp, or dance rattle.Even in its apparent simplicity, this carving shows the artistry of this celebrated carver.
