1920s Australian Native “Ornate Skin Mutations” Artisric Photograph For Sale
1920s Australian Native “Ornate Skin Mutations” Artisric Photograph:
Note: Watermark does not appear on actual photo.Up for sale is a 4.5” X 6.25” 1920’s photo of an Australian Native with skin mutations. The mutations are described in the LOA as being similar to branding and while there is a lengthy hand written description on the reverse, it was rather difficult to completely make out due to the handwriting style and the rubber-stamping. I was however able to make out the fact that one purpose of the markings was to attract a wife. The note stating: “The young man shows his arms and back to his intended mother-in-law if she is satisfied they are well harmoniously(not sure of this word) done then negotiations for the marriage with her daughter are arranged”. Northern Territory Australia.
