In this picture a young Native American girl is picking fruit. She has a stylish “bob” haircut with bangs and a belted dress. The tree she picks from is a peach tree, a gift from the Spanish missionaries. Many pueblos had orchards in which to cultivate fruit. She collects fruit into a beautiful earthen vessel along an adobe wall.
