The quiver angle's an interesting one. I'd just assumed it was some kind of medicine. Yeah, I know about the Shoshone/Crow thing; I wonder if the (mis)identification was just someone unfamiliar with Shoshone style or maybe they thought the face paint resembled the face paint associated with Crows in other Lakota ledger art.
A quiver would have a seperate bow and arrow quiver, the legs would not be on the quiver but on both ends of the strap.
I don't think it's a quiver; It's his Tokala fox skin Wotawe.
That is a very interesting tipi liner, have not seen that one before. If you ever find out where you copied this from, please let me know!
It was undoubtedly once in a museum (based on the generic blue cloth in the background), although many of these were eventually sold to private collectors. Someone did put numbers next to many of the scenes, so there must have been a document with comments or descriptions.
Great detail on the red war cape and turban / head cover.
Hmmmm. As you can see, I used tinypic.com as a hosting site for images and it recently ceased operating, so we've lost many images from the earlier days of this board. I've gone through this thread and tried to replace images - though I haven't always succeed and sometimes the image quality isn't as good - and if anyone else has any, please don't hesitate to post them.
While clearly not a red war cape, let alone a turban, I came upon a sequence of photos of a dance at the Crow Agency, probably by Goff. (https://mtmemory.org/digital/collection/p267301coll3/id/5799)
The text says, "taken on a camping trip of 10th Cav. from Ft. Custer, Montana, 1894-95," though this may be the same sequence that includes those photos that supposedly show John Grass and Rain in the Face (in actuality, probably neither) and other Lakota dancing with the Crow at a Little Bighorn anniversary in 1886 (credited to Dick Fansler though I don't think he got into the business until 1892).
Anyhow, the point if this is that it's a photo of a man dancing in a painted war cape, the type posted further back in the thread:
