Description

    MAGNIFICENT LARGE CABINET CARD OF SHOOTING STAR BY D.F. BARRY. Very attractive oval 4½" x 6¼" sepia image of an attractive Indian maiden known as Shooting Star (also identified in other photographs as Sweet Clover). Shooting Star is seen here in all her finery - beautifully beaded leggings and moccasins, belts and a great deal of dentalium shell decoration. These curved tubular shells from the Pacific Northwest were traded from the Pacific to the Arctic and throughout the Plains, having both monetary and decorative value. Shooting Star wears a dentalium shell choker and long strands of dentalium shells decorating her braids. Taken in Barry's Buffalo New York studio, the image has been affixed to a beautifully embossed photographer's mount with Barry's ink stamp at lower left. At lower center of the mount: "Shootting (sic) Star." On verso in pencil in an unknown hand, "A Sioux Indian Belle - Shooting Star." Additional penciled notations indicate placement of photo in a series/portfolio of images. Second ink stamp noting Barry's studio address on verso. Very attractive and perfect for display.
