DescriptionWhen Paul Kane drew this pipe in 1845, there was a white stone keg and a red stone human figure standing in front of the seated man. Each of the three figures had coloured downy feathers anchored at the tops of their heads. These elements are now missing. The drawing is in the Stark Museum of Art, Orange, Texas, Cat. No. 31.78.184.
