Unframed. Plate 455, published in “The North American Indian (1907-1930) v.13, The Hupa. The Yurok. The Karok. The Wiyot. The Tolowa and Tututni. The Shasta. The Achomawi. The Klamath.” Artist Comments: “The head-dress is of the type common to the Klamath River tribes - a broad band of deerskin partially covered with a row of red scalps of woodpecker. The massive necklace of clam-shell beads indicates the wealth of the wearer, or of the friend from whom he borrowed it. He carries a ceremonial celt of black obsidian and a decorated bow.”
