This captivating photograph taken by Edward Curtis in 1899 features an esteemed Hopi Snake Priest. The priest is depicted in a 3/4 length portrait, seated with body and facial paint. Adorned with striking beads made of shells and bones, his attire reflects the cultural significance and symbolism of the Hopi tradition. In his right hand, he holds a feather, a sacred object embodying spiritual significance. The image offers a glimpse into the sacred rituals and deep spiritual connection of the Hopi people, beautifully captured by Edward Curtis' lens.
