DescriptionIOWA OR SAUK-FOX MAN
An unidentified Iowa or Sauk-Fox man, by Charles M. Bell, Washington, D.C. Mounted on board, with gilded edges.
He wears two, beaded, side-stitch chokers and a double necklace of glass beads, probably turquoise blue; with silver earrings and an engraved bracelet of nickel-silver. A wool yarn sash is wrapped around his head as a turban, supporting two golden eagle center-tail feathers. Both symbolize battle coups. The right feather is touched with red paint to indicate a wound was sustained during performance of the deed.
