Parrot by Quinston Taylor
This katsina doll is carved by Quinston Taylor from Kykotsmovi.
Quinston purposely put the parrot on the top of the head at a slight angle so that the feathers would not get bent when hung on a wall.
He is 6 1/4 inches tall overall.
Kyaro is a Parrot katsina whose bright colorful feathers are used in various Hopi ceremonies. They dance at a fast pace and appear during Angk’wa in the summer katsina day dances.
