Fifth and Sixth

As mentioned earlier, our fifth and sixth meetings were inspired by the Kachina dolls. Although the earliest Kachina dolls are basically rudimentary carved flat bits of wood, a lot of the later ones are decorated with feathers, textiles, and fur so as to resemble clothing, or emphasize frightening features. For us some hair-weave from the local wig-shop and a couple of stuffed animals from a charity shop provided some good substitutes to work with. The usual big jar of pickles was on the 5th meeting exchanged for a buffet of biscuits and for the 6th meeting we built a coconut altar out of peoples contributions of tropical fruit.
