D'une abstraction extrême ces deux poupées Kachina taillées dans le bois tendre d'une racine de cottonwood où subistent encore des traces de pigments affirment le style des Indiens Pueblo de la Tribu Acoma. Les têtes simplement signifiées par un sillon circulaire sont prolongées par un corps tubulaire. La femme, la plus grande des deux, est reconnaissable par sa tabletta stylisée, tandis que l'homme est composé d'un simpe cylindre de bois d'où émerge un appendice nasal tubulaire. Ces œuvres peuvrent être datées des années 1880-1890.
