"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.
Moccasins painted red around the ankle and with extensive multi-color beadwork on the vamp and sides. Beaded designs include a crescent moon and star in gold-colored beads on a blue ground.
