Group of six Hopi Kachina dolls, 1960's/70's from LBC flea on Sunday, again this was one persons collection from an estate sale kept together. The first two are larger and carved/notched from one switch of wood (no glued elements apart from long gone feathers)-the bottom four are a little more roadside production line but make a nice supporting cast-nutty little guys. In house relatives here and here.

The First one is a nice find I repair older Hopi dolls and can fix this guy up for you if you'd like, he's missing ears. The next one is a "Boyscout" carving made of Pine I have 1 remarkably similar they carved them from the Hunt Book series of How To, the next 4 are Route 66 Navajo Yei dolls, quite nice but not Hopi.
