The Kachina Dolls were designed and brought to life by Jane Price, a textile artist who also works with a varied and wide range of materials. Her Kachina Dolls are inspired by the spiritual traditions of native Americans, particularity derived from New Mexico. The dolls were ancestral spirits in mythology that would be used to teach social and ceremonial traditions to younger generations. The first known Kachina dolls were obtained by traders in 1857. Our favourite Kachina doll is Keeper of Time ( Present, Past & Future ) but never the less they are all fascinating, very detailed designed to a high standard craftsmanship.
