Presented here are one hundred classic-era (1880s-1940s) Hopi and Zuni carved dolls from private and public collections that have rarely, if ever, been put on exhibition and that collectively form a profound and powerful assembly of the very finest examples from the classic period in Kachina carving. Andrea Portago has gracefully photographed these rare figures using available light so as not to distort their colours and to reveal their movement and drama, passion and personality.

Great book great service. This subject is very hard to find any information on. I have a great collection of early Kachinas and have sought in print and pictoral information to go with it. It actually enhances the value of the collection. The price was well below competitive comparisons. Thanks. Read full review
