Feathered Yei from Whirling Logs Sandpainting of the Night Chant Ceremony. The yei is shown with a feathered coat in all of the depictions. A round head indicates a male Yei.
"Although there are exceptions to the rule, a round head a male Yei and a square or slightly rectangular head indicates a female Yei."
"The Yeis are supernatural beings from Navajo religion, with the word Yei being usually translated as God. The masked dancers who portray the Yei in certain ceremonies are referred to as Yeibihchai dancers, after the Yei-bih-chai ceremony in which they appear."
