Boy Howdy, does the week ever fly by!
Last week I promised to be diligent and have an actual letter K all ready for ABC Wednesday, but here it is Tuesday night again, and I'm scrambling!
In looking over my backlog of photos (which is a pretty daunting task) I finally found these and decided to do Kachina for the letter K.
Actually, I was looking for Kokopelli, which is also a Kachina, but can you believe I don't have one single picture of Kokopelli? Oh well, you probably already know what he looks like anyway.
Kachina dolls are representations of Pueblo Gods, used in various religious ceremonies. You'd think that after all this time in the southwest, I'd have a slew of pictures of various Kachinas, but I only came across this one . . .
Named Pahlik Mana, it actually represents a Maiden, signifying the springtime and a spirit of renewal. She is sometimes referred to as the Butterfly Maiden.
Sorry this is so sparse, but it's all I've got (unless you want pictures of me, my name is Kate after all, but I'd much rather do Kachina).
I can guarantee one thing, there will be no more promises from me on how prepared I'll be "next week".
