Female carvers are not the norm, but Regina is one of a growing number.  Her humorous Koshare clowns are a signature for her, and her work is recognized as high quality.  She is from the village of Hotevilla, Third Mesa, AZ.

 

Koshares or clowns are often seen in dances and are there to lighten up the more serious aspects of the ceremony.
