Bill Sewemaenewa Hopi Patung (Squash) 8 1/4" Katsina

Bill Sewemaenewa Hopi Patung (Squash) 8 1/4" Katsina

We are offering a vintage Patung (Squash) Katsina/Kachina Cottonwood Doll, hand crafted by Hopi carver Bill Sewemaenewa. Attached handwritten note which reads "Patun - Squash The Patun [sic] Clan, now extinct on the East Mesa, are said to have lived at the ruins of Homolovi during the 16th and 17th centuries, then settled at Teukubi on the Middle Mesa, which is now in ruins. Is a runner which challenges young men to race in spring." Patung or Squash Kachina is also known as the Patung Kachina and is a chief Kachina of the “wuya” for the Pumpkin Clan. He is related to healing and agriculture, and is known as the plant Kachina. The Hopi belief is that Patung showed them how to plant corn. They bring their own water for planting to ensure a plentiful crop. He is also considered a chief kachina. Patung appears primarily on first mesa as a racer. He may have been derived from Zuni Origins. He carries flowers in his left and right hands. He comes in late springs as a group or as individuals during a pause in the dances. He is responsible for sending water to germinate the crops. This doll is an excellent example of Bill Sewemaenewa's work, with exceptional attention down to the finest detail. Stands 8 1/4" tall.
