Owl Kachina by Hopi Master Carver Milton Howard

Also called Mongwa.  "The kachina is a warrior who disciplines the clowns when their behavior becomes too outrageous."1

"Best noted for his incessant war on the clowns.  As the clowns follow their usual pattern of un-Hopi-like behavior, a single silent figure will drift into one corner of the plaza and watch these uncouth fellows.

When the clowns next appear, growing ever more boisterous in their actions, the Owl again appears and hoots solemnly.  With each appearance he gets closer until he ends up talking with the clown chief who promptly blames all misbehavior on the other clowns.  But at the last performance, the Owl is joined by other Warrior Kachinas.  They leapupon the clowns, douse them with water, beat them vigorously with willow switches or yucca blades, and leave them howling with remorse in a pile in the middle of the plaza."2

Available in six sizes.
