The Great Horned Owl Kachina has been a favorite of the kachina carvers over many decades. The carving or creation of the heads of these dolls is to be marveled at, with an assortment of materials used ( variegated fur, rabbit skin, feathers, and wood) to produce an effect of owl feathers. The Mongwu Kachina is a warrior who disciplines the clowns when their behavior becomes too outrageous. (Owl Kachina, Mongwu).
