This Koyala Kachina is holding a piece of watermelon with juice dripping around his mouth. He has a sweet smile on his face and the watermelon has an intricately carved fly on it. It is Titled simply, “Koyala” and was hand carved by Hopi artist, Ted Pavatea.
Ted is the son of Tewa-Hopi potter Garnet Pavatea and was born in 1952 in the Village of Hano at Hopi. He is a favorite carver of ours as his Kachinas always make us smile.
