Na-ngasohu by Pierdziwilk Na-ngasohu by Pierdziwilk
Chasing Star Kachina, called also Planet or Meteor Kachina.

Na-ngasohu represents the spirit of planets and stars. His clothes is quite unusual, but his purpose during dances is vague.

You gallery main theme is really something unusual oO
I'm really digging indian themes. (or anything related to the indian cultures)

I'm just wondering: Are those religious characters taken from an existing tribe or culture somewhere in the world or did you make them up? ^^

Well, yes, something from Native American culture but not connected with Great Plains is quite unusual :)

It's not my imagination, all of these characters are taken from the beliefs of real tribe - Hopi - which live in Arizona. In their mythology Kachinas are supernatural beings representing every existing matter or concept.
I'm concentrating on this culture because I just found it incredibly amazing :)
