Unidentified African-American Wildman by Eisenmann

Cabinet Card. Smiling African-American Wildman wearing a painted tunic, looking at what appears to be a cabinet card held in his left hand. His right hand rests on a table and holds a quill pen. A war club is propped up on the floor in front of him, and on a table to his left hangs strands of beaded necklaces. Inexplicably, along with white painted decorations on his legs and chest, his chest also has the date 1868 painted on it.
