Kosha Appreciating Anything

Kosha Appreciating Anything, Roxanne Swentzell, 1997

This figure, a Pueblo clown or Kosha, is a sacred being that appears in religious dances and performs numerous roles within Pueblo ceremonial structure. Often Kosha teach through their actions. This clown stares intently at his hand as if realizing for the first time its complexity and through it, perhaps the mystery of life and reminding us that reflection is frequently the prelude to wisdom.
