Wilson Tawaquaptewa Woodpecker Kachina DollWilson Tawaquaptewa (1871-1960) was a Hopi chief from Oraibi and a very important early carver who carved fanciful dolls that were not iconographically accurate in the Hopi tradition in order to protect his culture. This bird figure is just under 6" tall. It may have had top feathers at one time. It bears some resemblance to a hummingbird kachina but looks to me more like a cactus wren, flicker or woodpecker. Very good unrestored condition. Unsigned. My client actually remembers buying this from Wilson with his parents as a young boy.
