DescriptionOutstanding Cabinet Card of Ponca Sun Dance, 1894. This exceptional image, published by Oklahoma City photographer T. Croft, captures the tribe in the midst of a Sun Dance. The men are mostly bare chested and wear white blankets around their waists. A close examination reveals many holding feathered knives or spears in their mouths. Two men stand at one end of the dance line holding large wreaths over their heads - one made of straw, the other of a vine-like plant, possibly ivy. Although this image is not dated, other Croft images taken of the same dance bear negative inscriptions that read "July '94." Image is in pristine condition, as is the scalloped, gilt-lettered and gilt-edged photographer's mount. "Ponca Sun Dance" penned on verso.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
