"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Osage name by curator Stewart Culin may not be accurate. Fan is made from the tail feathers of a winter hawk. Large hawks have 12 feathers; small hawks have 10 feathers in tail. According to Sean Standing Bear 10/20/2000 this fan is missing its center feather. The handle is woven with dyed porcupine quillwork with a row of blue and white beads along each edge.
