Tyo'o'ñi Shiwanna Mask — Cochiti

Tyo'o'ñi Shiwanna Mask — Cochiti

from 15.00

From Edward Curtis’ Field Notes:

“…a mask with turkey-feathers transversely on the top. The painting of masks of this personage varies in color, but all have the turkey-feathers which are their distinguishing mark. Participating with maskers of this kind are Tyo’o’ñi Shiwanna, the ancestral deities associated with the ancient Keres cliff-dwelling at Tyo’o’ñi (Rito de los Frijoles).” – Edward S. Curtis
