Little Hopi Clowns

21 ½” H x 10 ½ “ W x 8” D

Bronze, Edition of 35

SOLD

A Little girl holds a wooden figure; both are wearing a shaft of corn husk ribbons which identifies them as Hopi Clowns or Kwirena. Unlike Koshari, who are the summer clowns, Kwirena are involved in winter ceremonies and associated with the germination of corn.  Hopi Clowns usually provide comic relief during some ceremonies such as playing practical jokes or mocking members of the tribe.
