Le visage recouvert d'un masque noir, la chemise noire barrée d'un baudrier blanc à pois rouge et le kilt ocre décoré d'un zigzag noir orné de flèches blanches identifient cette œuvre comme une représentation de Saviki membre des Kachina-Chefs. Cette iconographie est particulièrement rare et cette œuvre peut être datée des années 1910-1920.
