Par leur iconographie ces deux Kachina peuvent être identifiées comme des Kachina Tétard Pavatea. Les tétards peints en noir invoquent les pluies de printemps qui stimulent les cultures et favorisent les récoltes tandis que les nuages incarnent les ancêtres divinisés apportant leur bénédiction de puissance spirituelle avec la pluis.


Ce modèle de Kachina est excessivement rare dans le corpus.
