Circular, wickerwork, basketry tray. The center is painted with an image of a Katsina, likely the Havasupai (Konin) Katsina who represents the Havasupai people. The Katsina's face is unpainted with inverted "V" lines in red above the mouth. A red circle is painted under each rectangular eye. A multicolored headdress is attached to the head. The edge is painted with a solid, black line and wrapped with a wide, plant fiber band. The reverse shows the back of the Katsina's head.
