In the words of Edward Sheriff Curtis "It would be difficult to conceive of a more thorough aboriginal than this Mohave girl. Her eyes are those of the fawn of the forest, questioning the strange things of civilization upon which it gazes for the first time."
Kean has captured the moment of this historical photo, and given it a warmth of hue and texture. Not to diminish the Curtis photo, but this shows Keans style of art, and love of the historical subjects.
