Mastof Kachina, as described by Harold S. Colton in Hopi Kachina Dolls:

Black case mask with white dots on face which represent constellations: on the right side the Pleiades, on the left side the Dipper; frogs are painted on the back of the mask. grass ruff. Kilt is a woman's dress, worn out and discarded, but in the old days it is said to have been a wildcat skin. Red moccasins. Body painted black with a white hand painted on the chest. He carries a rattle and a throwing stick.
