Presented here are one hundred classic-era (1880s-1940s) Hopi and Zuni carved dolls from private and public collections that have rarely, if ever, been put on exhibition and that collectively form a profound and powerful assembly of the very finest examples from the classic period in Kachina carving. Portago has greacefully photographed these rare figures using avaialbe light so as not to distort their colors and to reveal their movement and drama, passion and personality. Wright's essay masterfully elucidates Pueblo culture and cosmology and the systems and perceptions by which Pueblo People interact with their perceived universe.
