From a photo album of scenes from South America, this black and white image depicts a man wearing a large feather headdress, with body and face paint of his tribal group. The grey backing measures 11 3/4" x 8 3/4" and is perforated at the top where it was fastened in the photo album. A piece of thin transparent paper covers the image for protection from wear. The actual photo measures 6 7/8" x 4 5/8". In excellent condition, with no fading or marring, and a bit of the silver is visible at the top edge. (there is a bit of light reflection in one of the photos, making the bottom looked washed out). The original album had scenes from various locations throughout South America, from Brazil to the Andes, and this is the only image of indigenous people from the Amazon river basin. The album was undated, but images appeared to be from the 1930's.
