The Hopi Yellow Corn Maiden kachina was hand carved and signed by the famous Hopi artist Dewangyumptewa, who is a member of the Hopi Tabacco clan. The Yellow Corn Maiden kachina represents a Hopi prayer for an abundant corn crop. The base of the doll features two Long Hair Kachinas, whose flowing hair represents the rain, and a Hopi basket to hold the corn. Made of cottonwood root, the kachina stands 8 1/2 inches tall and 3 inches wide.----- In the spring the Hopi hold the Niman ceremony on the First Mesa, where the Yellow Corn Maiden kachina (Takursh Mana) appears in dances with other Kachinas such as the Long Haired kachinas pictured at her feet. They dance in a line separate from other dancing kachinas, but follow the same pattern of turns and gestures. The Yellow Corn Maiden does make one different move. She kneels and places a large gourd on the ground to rasp. She usually carries a scapula and a notched stick, which produce a sound with different tones like a music instrument.----- The Long-Haired kachinas or Tawa Angak'china positioned at the base, are most favored by Hopis because they represent needed rainfall. The kachina dancers who imitate them at dances in the spring sing melodious songs and perform beautiful dances.
