The Zuni Knife-wing figure was a favorite among tourists during the early 1900’s. “This curious god is the hero of hundreds of folklore tales, the tutelary deity of several societies of Zuni. He is represented as possessing a human form, furnished with flint knife-feathered pinions, and tail. His dress consists of the conventional terraced cap (representative of his dwelling place among the clouds)." - Frank Hamilton Cushing
