Carved & painted by Hopi artist Donald Lomawunu Sockyma.
"My artwork is a reflection of my tribe and Native American heritage, which I am grateful for. I try to do my best to contribute the medium of katsina doll carving for future generations. Katsina dolls are meant to bring joy, happiness and blessings to those who possess these carvings. My artwork is my way of sharing this with the rest of the world. I fell honored and blessed to be included with the best of the best Native American artists that the country has to offer." -Donald Lomawunu Sockyma
