Broad Face Kachina ~ Tile Back
( Click on image to enlarge or shrink)
This tile was made by Bob and Charmion McKusick of Gila Pottery in Globe, Arizona. The tile design was done by a friend of theirs, White Bear. White Bear, also known as Oswald Fredericks, was a highly respected native American Hopi artist. He was particularly well known for his kachinas. This tile depicts a native American dancer in full garb. This appears to be the Broadface Kachina – who has yucca fronds in his hands. The tile measures about 5 3/4" square. Although undated it was probably made in the 1970's. It is in excellent condition. It has an original Gila Pottery paper label on the back and is signed with White Bear's cypher on the front. (#3114)
( Item #3114 )   $125
