    Description

    STUNNING HERRIN CABINET CARD OF RAIN-IN-THE-FACE. A truly magnificent cabinet card, both in image quality and condition, this 3¾" x 5¼" Herrin photograph shows Rain-In-The-Face in all his glory. He is dressed in a fringed and beaded buckskin jacket and wears a magnificent full-length eagle feather headdress, complete with ermine- and feather-festooned buffalo horn cap. In one hand, Rain-In-The-Face holds a peace pipe, in the other a stone war club. The great Hunkpapa warrior is identified on the lower border of the gilt-edged photographer's mount; on the verso, a list of additional photographs available through the Herrin studio. This is an exceptional item, ready for prominent display!
