This Hopi Pueblo Ma’alo Katsina doll appears to be a little later than others in this collection, perhaps as late as the 1960s.  He was well carved and painted.  There is a red fabric sash across his chest, red yarn on his right wrist and left side of the mask.  The right “ear” is missing a section and the left arm has been broken and glued.

The Fred Harvey Collection Hopi Pueblo Ma'alo Katsina, Kachina Doll is supported on an unpainted pedestal but not of the type associated with other Fred Harvey mounts.  If this was part of the Fred Harvey Advertising Department collection, then it is possible that the Company ceased using the square black pedestals by this time.
