Corn Boy kachina doll by Ryon Polequaptewa (Hopi)

Ryon Polequaptewa is from Shungopavi Village on the Hopi Reservation in Northern Arizona and is a member of the Sun Clan. He resides in Phoenix, AZ. Ryon carves traditional style Katsina dolls as seen from personal experience. Each one-of-a-kind figure is imbued with humor, imagination and character. Ryon learned the art from his brother Tayron Polequaptewa.

Much of Ryon's current work is inspired by the Kachina dolls of Wilson Tawaquaptewa (1871- 1960) who intentionally created dolls that were not exact representations of the Kachina dancers in order to protect their sacred nature. He also chooses to work with very simple tools in keeping with the older tradition of doll making.

The Corn Dancer Kachina is one of the most popular of all the Kachinas and appear in many dances. Whenever they appear they represent a prayer for the growth of corn.

This kachina doll measures 13" tall x 6" wide (including feathers).
