    PRISTINE HAND-TINTED HAYNES CABINET OF CHIEF WHITE BULL. Nephew of Sitting Bull, Miniconjou Sioux Chief White Bull fought at the Battle of the Little Bighorn, and later became a judge in the Court of Indian Offenses. This magnificent portrait is in exceptional condition - clean, sharp, and fresh, with vibrant colors. White Bull is pictured here as a young man, with pomaded and braided hair, a quill vest, a presidential peace medallion around his neck and feathers in his hair. He also wears gold earrings and arm bands, and his braids are wrapped in fur. Photograph measures 3¾" x 5½" and is affixed to Haynes' St. Paul photographer's mount (4¼" x 6½"), which advertises a list of "Colored Cabinets of Noted Indians" on verso. The entire image has been artfully and precisely hand colored with dramatic results - this striking image should be displayed prominently!
