This listing is for a Very Fine copy of Hopi Indian Kachina Dolls written by Oscar T. Branson.

Editorial Reviews From Library Journal Morethan just dolls, kachinas are symbolic representations of spirits,gods, and natural forces. These powers become accessible to the Hopipeople through embodiment in carved figures or when re-created throughcostume and dance. Unfortunately, this guide by Branson ( In dian PuebloColoring Book , Treasure Chest, 1984; Indian Jewelry Making , TreasureChest, 1979) for collecting the traditional dolls falls short. Hedescribes a large number of kachinas but arranges them by a confusingcode, and the accompanying color sketches are amateurish. A better bookfor collectors is Barton Wright's Hopi Kachinas: The Complete Guide toCollecting Kachina Dolls (Northland Pr., 1977). Wright's book coversgeneral collecting advice, ignored by Branson, with the needed colorphotos. This is not recommended.

There are illustrations ofthe types of masks, body paint, clothing, moccasins, tabletas, jewelry,articles used and carried, and the meaning of the symbols used on masksand kachina bodies.
