DescriptionCabinet Card Image of Osage Medicine Man Little Soldier and Wife, circa 1890s. An unknown photographer captured this studio image of Osage medicine man Little Soldier and his wife. They are seated wearing traditional attire; he with a richly appliquéd shirt and she with many long beaded necklaces and numerous earrings. He hold a rifle in one hand and a turban-like headdress with a feather in the back. Identified on verso as "Osage Indians. Little Soldier & wife. Medicine man." Small area of image loss at Little Soldier's forehead is not due to wear or damage; apparently a drop of a corrosive chemical spattered on the original negative.
Condition: Light age toning. Moderate wear to mount edges and corners with a heavy crease at lower left. Very good.
