Chester Poleyestewa

Chester Polyestewa, the well known Hopi carver who is inspired to continue the life of some of the rarer kachina identities. It is fascinating to consider the meanings behind the figures, to observe the myriad of details which are clues, and to absorb the intentionality, beauty and design of the art form. Polyestewa tells the stories of Hopi history through his charming and delightful dolls. Much like the man himself, they are filled with light and uplifting to behold.
