Description
 

This Yohozro Wuhti Kachina was carved and signed by world-renowned Hopi carver Jimmy Kewanwytewa. She measures 11" tall by 4 1/2" wide. She is in excellent condition, with no cracks or broken parts. Jimmy added horsehair in place of wood carved hair, which appears very natural in the braids. Signed JK on the bottom right foot. Barton Wright shows a very similar kachina by Jimmy K. in the publication, Hopi Kachinas The Complete Guide to Collecting Kachina Dolls. Several of Jimmy's Kachinas are pictured in this book.  

 

This Mana is the Cold-Bringing Woman. Her most common appearance is on the First Mesa during the Powamu. She carries a Hopi comb in her hand to muss up people's hair, much like the winter winds. She appears in all white, as her name implies, she brings the whiteness of winter. (Horo Mana, Masan Wuhti, Yohozro Wuhti, Comb hair Upwards Girl or Cold Bringing Woman).
