Hopi Indians live in stark, desert conditions on three mesas in Northeastern Arizona. Hopi "kachinas" are stylized religious icons carved from cottonwood roots and painted to represent the masked spirits from Hopi mythology. The inspiration for Hopi Maidens is the ceremony that is held each year in which Hopi maidens and tribesmen dressed as kachinas dance and sing to bring rain for the upcoming harvest. Writes the artist, "One side has a woman's feel with 3 Hopi maidens and a Corn Kachina. The other side has 3 male kachina figures with the Sun Kachina. On the base is the beautiful Butterfly Kachina. I wanted to fill the pony with Hopi inspirations for long life, love, health and strength." Item# 4022511 - Artist: Vickie Knepper-Adrian - Material: Stone Resin - Dimensions: 8½"
The Trail of Painted Ponies, like its predecessor, the Cow Parade, are beautiful, often humorous, replicas of the original public art displays. The original Trail of Painted Ponies consisted of life-sized ponies, painted and decorated by top artists from across the country. They were displayed in public places throughout New Mexico, after which they were auctioned off with most of the proceeds going to youth, arts, social, cultural, animal and environmental non-profit organizations.
Westland Giftware has created these figurine replicas of the original Trail of Painted Ponies. The figurines are either resin or ceramic, and each is hand-numbered. The whimsical designs and beautiful craftsmanship make them an instant favorite for any collector or horse lover. Crystal Palace carries the full line of painted ponies, including special seasonal designs.
