480 were carved to order. On one order, Ted wrote back to Dr. Layne and said that he could not

carve two of the requested cradle dolls on the order, The Terrific Power (


and Ashes



as they were “too powerful.” All of the notes, correspondence, and receipts for his

purchases were retained and are included with the collection.

Dr. Layne’s initial goal when he started collecting, was to obtain all of the animal and plant

Cradle Katsinam. As his knowledge and interest grew, he expanded his objective to try to collect

all active and inactive Katsinam, and as many variants as possible. He built an extensive

research library about Hopi Katsinam, including references written by early residents,

researchers, and artists at Hopi such as Jesse Walter Fewkes, Alexander M. Stephen, Joseph

Mora, and Henry R. Voth. Many of the special order dolls were carved from illustrations in

these early reference sources.
