Asahel Curtis, brother of the more well-known Edward S. Curtis, also produced photos of Native Americans - often focusing on the Makah tribe in northwest Washington. Here we see two women at work making baskets, very possibly for the tourist trade. A striking feature of this photo is the number of textures apparent - from the woven mat on the wall, to the wonderful wraps worn by the unidentified women, to the the reed mat on the ground. Even their braided hair adds to the all-encompassing sense of craftsmanship. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
