Description

Framed Jo Mora Print Sho-Yang Ep Katchina (left-handed Katchina ) Hop - East Mesa 1904 # 575/650

Original was painted by Jo Mora in the early 1900s. Mora, from Boston, had heard of the Hopi Snake Dance and was determined to go to the Hopi Reservation to see it in person. He and a friend did just that in 1904. What was to be a three-week trip lasted three years with Mora taking a house on the reservation and painting and photographing. He and artist E. A. Burbank shared a house at Second Mesa where they both immersed themselves in Hopi culture. Mora produced the best photographs of Hopi ceremonials that exist today.
