Description:
Described in Vol. II, p. 75. Caption from Truettner catalog of Catlin's Indian Gallery. Entry from Catlin's 1848 catalog reads, "Quay-ham-kay, the Stone Shell; a brave, and a good specimen of the wild untutored savage." Originally painted in 1834 (Truettner, 1979, p. 162). This print lacks armbands and bracelets pictured in the original oil. In both, the figure is wearing a necklace made of what appear to be either shells or dewclaws.
