Kachinas by Kermit Oliver

The Kachinas Hermes scarf was designed by highly collected American artist, Kermit Oliver, who in addition to the Kachinas has designed some of the most sought after scarves such as the Faune et Flore du Texas (1986), Les Cheyennes (1993), Concours d’Elegance – 1885 Limousines de Voyage (2002) and Mythologies des Hommes Rouges (1994) to name but a few.

Just like the name suggests, this design is filled with Kachina dancers. According to Pueblo Indian mythology a Kachina can be one of three things, a deified ancestral spirit, a person who represents a kachina spirit in a ceremonial dance or a carved figurine representing a kachina spirit.
