Native American Alabaster
At Kachina House we carry a selection of Native American alabaster carvings, both figurative and functional, handmade by Apache and Zuni artists. Crafted and accented with natural materials, we offer unique objects of art and craft.
Alabaster is a soft stone found in many parts of the world. It has been used over the centuries in the creation of statuary, sculpture and other decorative ways. Sculptors find much value in its transparency, its ease for carving and its spiritual attributes.
Alabaster symbolizes purity; it is believed to represent the color of the soul. The whiter the stone, the better. It encourages feelings of peace and can be used to combat stress, heal arguments or calm an angry household. Alabaster is a protective stone, especially for infants, children and anyone innocent at heart. It can be used to lessen the fear of change and help you cope with upheavals and problems. Alabaster teaches us that change is not ‘bad’ or something to be feared, but it can be an opportunity to learn and grow stronger. Alabaster draws a forgiveness nature in a person, in wearing this stone or holding it during meditation, a person can achieve the ability to forgive others and even oneself. It helps in gaining energy. Using alabaster at home can inspire the positive in a person; it can help control one's temper and diminish anger from inside. It can grow the light of peace in an individual. It can inspire a person to view things in a new manner.
