2004-09 Dish with Qoqolo Kachina Face

Object ID:
2004-09

Artist:
Juanita Healing

Culture:
Hopi

Dimensions:
1.25" h X 3.0" w

Small and shallow Hopi dish with Qoqolo katsina face. Like 2004-02, this pot is of finer quality than the pieces fired outdoors by Juanita in when I visited her (see 1994-10; see 1999-09b for kiln-fired pieces). When we visited Hano in January 2005, Juanita was living in a retirement home and was no longer living on the plaza. She died in 2006.

See also 2004-02, which represents Juanita’s older and finer work. A shallow plaque by Terri Lynn Honani (1995-05), a canteen by Karen Charlie purchased at the same time (1995-06), and the Jake Koopee bowl (2004-08) also contain images of the Qoqolo katsina.

See “Kachina Design” in the Category List for a complete listing of pots in this collection decorated with kachina images.
