DescriptionThe interior of this ladle is decorated with a mana figure. This is indicated by the head decoration, the face with the stripes below the eyes, and the lines below the head. There are several possible interpretations of the depiction, but Pahlik Mana (Water Drinking Girl) The Pahlik Mana appears during women's dances, especially the Mamzrau Initiation Dance. Pahlik Mana is never masked at First or Second Mesa and so she is not viewed as a katsina there, but she is a katsina at Third Mesa and is always masked when carved as a doll.
