Lot 249    

J. L. Cusick Cabinet Card of Oto Father and Son,
2007, Western & Historic Americana, Dec 6th and 7th
with Cusick's Arkansas City, Kansas, imprint on mount below image. The older man wears the plucked-scalp, roached hairstyle shared by the Pawnee and Osage. A golden eagle tail feather in his scalp lock proclaims that he is a man of valor. A small looking glass in a celluloid frame is in his right hand. The father wears silver ball and cone earrings. The earrings of the son are circular pieces of conch shell. A choker of strung beads circles his neck, from which is suspended a peace medal on a silk ribbon. His moccasins are beaded in abstract floral designs. The son bears a remarkable resemblance to William Fawfaw, the Oto Prophet (compare National Anthropological Archives, Neg. No. gn_03863a). It is not quite the same face; at this age Fawfaw was more lean, but a close family relationship is likely.

Condition:  
Three pinholes along top margin of mount, ink spatter marks; otherwise fine.
