Probably a representation of Tasap, the "Navajo Kachina", with broad, slightly convex body, decorated with a series of narrow vertical stripes in red against a white ground, small circles indicating breasts(?) and necklace above, and angular arms with splayed hands painted in yellow and traces of green, the large case mask in a similar shade of olive green, and with projecting downturned beak, exaggerated "pothook" eyes painted in black, a notched panel along the chin, and overhanging browline painted in red continuing behind, the left ear now missing. Provenance: Miguel Covarrubias Collection, Mexico City. Dimensions: 9 1/2" tall.
