Kachina Animal Necklace
This vintage fetish necklace has a horned mudhead Kachina as the centerpiece, surrounded by a dense mixture of birds and animals. The Kachina is inlaid, as are a few of the birds on the necklace. The majority of the birds and animals have pigmented eyes.
The Kachina is made of two pieces of bone, joined before it was carved. The small animals and birds also appear to be made from bone. The necklace is finished with wrapped string.
Necklace is 36″; kachina is 2 3/8 in. high x 7/8 in. wide x 1/2 in. deep.
Origin of the necklace is a New Mexico Pueblo, possibly Zuni or Santo Domingo.
