Mosairu or White Buffalo - Travis Boyd Hopi Kachina Doll
Like most animal Katsinam, the Buffalo (Mosairu) dances to increase his kind. This Katsina is very well-known and is the most powerful. He can kill any evil thoughts and is a great spiritual protector.
The appearance of the Buffalo Kachina (Mosairu) is similar to the Buffalo Dancer with one exception: the Buffalo Kachina wears a mask. The mask has globular eyes and a snout. He usually dances in the Plaza Dance with the Mixed Dancers. They perform using the rattle and the lightning stick, and along with the other game animal Kachinas, they pray for an increase of buffaloes. In the past, most of the Buffalo Kachinas were made with green masks, but nowadays they are commonly found with black and white ones.
Travis Boyd continues to amaze with his minute ddeetails and striking coloring. The buffalo presented here is an excellent example opf his immense talent. Another young and very promising carver whi is worth investing in while his prices are so reasonable.
