Hilili by Brian Holmes
This katsina doll is carved by Brian Holmes from Hotevilla.
He is 8" tall.
Hiilili is a whipper katsina, guard or security figure whose family appears during the Powamuya, Angk’wa and the summer day katsina dances. Dressed in the Snake Dancer‘s costume, he is a very spirited dancer. The Koyemsimu sing to them when they perform in group dances during Angk'wa.
Hiilili vary a great deal and are very collectable for this reason.
