Meet the Carvers • Live Music • Booksignings
More than 100 Hopi Katsina doll carvers will gather in Steele Auditorium at the Heard Museum, Phoenix to show and sell their unique carvings in both traditional and contemporary styles. Whether you’re a beginning or experienced katsina doll collector, attend the Marketplace to meet and purchase from the top established and emerging carvers.
This year’s signature carver, Nuvadi Dawahoya, will be presenting a two-piece set to be raffled entitled “Warrior’s Prayer.” Dawahoya’s concept for “Warrior’s Prayer” comes from the Hopi belief of praying for your wife and family’s continued prosperity before going off to war, using the pipe in the left hand during the prayer ceremony.
