KACHINA CEREMONIAL FIGURES ( Vintage Native American Indian Jewelry Hopi Pin ): This Vintage Sterling Silver pin of two Hopi Kachina figures makes a charming duo. (c. 1950-60) The Mudhead Kachina appears to be linking arms with his fellow Kachina, perhaps in preparation for an important ceremonial event. The Sterling pin has been fashioned by hand using the overlay technique developed by the Hopi Indians. There is a whimsical quality to these 2 fellows. The casual pose is very unusual - kachinas usually appear in more formal poses with god-like qualities. These two appear to be buddies, giving this piece a light hearted touch. There is a safety clasp pin back. Condition: Excellent. Unsigned. Size: 2 1/4” high, 1 3/4” wide.
