The primitive Mohave would wear dresses of only willow bark cloth likely pictured here by Edward S. Curtis. Unlike the braids seen in many tribes the Mohave women would always wear their hair loose. For art the tribe was quite skilled at beadwork and some crude but lovely pottery. Pictured here is an interesting vessel with a small sculptural face. The Mohave woman is hard at work and does not look up at photographer Edward Curtis.

This photogravure was taken in 1907 by Edward S. Curtis. The piece was printed on Deluxe Japanese Tissue and is available for sale in out Aspen Art Gallery.
