Introducing "The Silversmith's Daughter," an endearing photograph taken by J.R. Willis (1876-1960) in 1910, depicting a little Navajo girl in New Gallup New Mexico.
The young girl, approximately six years old, is adorned in traditional clothing that showcases the rich heritage of her people. Her attire is complemented by intricate jewelry crafted from beads, silver, and vibrant turquoise, reflecting the artistry and craftsmanship of the Navajo community.
Seated in a 3/4 portrait composition, the girl's expression suggests a touch of apprehension, adding depth and intrigue to the photograph. Her hair is neatly tied behind her back, allowing her striking features to take center stage, while the weight of her adorned jewelry accentuates the significance and importance of these cherished cultural adornments.
Beautiful, clear print of a lovely child, which is perfect for our homage to the Native Americans who lived on our property.
Beautiful image, shipped quickly. Gave as a gift, recipient was pleased.
