This is a doll whose paint has been largely faded away. When new his eyes would have been joined and he would have had painted flower designs in place of ears. Sipikne is a warrior or guard Kacina and appears as six Kachinas of different colors, guarding the towering Shalako Kachina,
The yellow feathers represent the North. The Zuñi believe in six sacred directions, each represented by a color. North, yellow, South, red, East, white, and West, blue, plus Above, all colors, and Below, black.
