    Description

    IMPORTANT IRWIN CABINET CARD OF 'KIOWA SQUAW' AND INFANT. This image, taken by Irwin in Chickasha Territory, depicts a Kiowa woman turned away from the camera to display her infant son and the beautifully beaded cradle board upon her back. This exact cradle is shown in the book Gifts of Pride and Love - Kiowa and Comanche Cradles, alongside a copy of this image. Photo measures approximately 3.25" x 5.5" and is affixed to Irwin's "Chickasha Ind. Ter." photographer's mount. Photo has a tiny chip at upper right, but is otherwise in fine condition. Mount shows typical wear at corners and edges, with one area of chipping at affecting Irwin's name on the front of the mount. Glue traces on verso.
