Two American Indians, apparently, in ceremonial costume: headdress of one blends horns and feathers; the other wears a buffalo headdress with a tail attached to his belt. Both carry weapons, one a bow and the other a right-angled tool resembling a bird's head. The two are in the midst of a ceremonial dance. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/27/95)
