    VERY RARE FULL-LENGTH CABINET IMAGE OF CHIEF KICKING BEAR. This 4" x 5½" sepia photograph of Chief Kicking Bear was taken by Dennistoun Photo Co. of Glasgow, during Kicking Bear's tour with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. The noted medicine man is depicted wearing his complete show costume, with a loose white shirt, dark striped pants, beaded moccasins, quill breastplate, floor-length feathered headdress, necklaces, vest and fur wraps on his braids. He stands in partial profile, looking into the lens. In one hand he holds a metal-tipped stick/cane, while the other rests on a length of log. Penciled notations on photographer's mount (recto and verso) provide reproduction instructions and information regarding placement in a portfolio/series of images. Some wear to corners of mount, else fine.
