Fletcher Healing Happy Koshare Clown with Watermelon and Piki Figurine
This Happy Koshare Clown with Watermelon and Piki has corn husks attached to his head covering. He also wears a shell and bead necklace, a bracelet on his left arm, carries a slice of watermelon in one hand and a roll of piki* in the other.
*Piki: a bread made from corn meal used in Hopi cuisine.
Perfect gift for anyone who appreciates USA/American art/culture or any Fletcher Healing. Fletcher Healing, Hopi-Tewa Tribe, Fletcher is the great-grandson of Nampeyo and grandson of Annie Healing Nampeyo. Unlike the rest of the family members, he was not a potter but chose to carve Katchina dolls. He was known for making these seated clowns whose legs hang over from the shelf.
