We can observe the typical features of the Kachina Cow: a helmet mask in skin which is covered with pigments, a pair of horns is placed on the temples of the mask, whereas the mouth, made of the same matter, is in the form of a duck beak on which are drawn sharp teeth; and finally the globulous eyes were added.
