With hand written title in the upper left in the negative, No. "225" and Copyright signed in the negative lower right. Heyn, along with Rinehart, made beautiful platinum print portraits of Indians who were set up at the St. Louis Worlds Fair, celebrating the Louisiana Purchase. The subject wears a hair pipe breastplate. One feather hangs down from his hair. The handsome face of this image was made into a Rookwood vase soon after by Olga Geneva Reed (1874 - 1955).
