Tarascan Recollections

Gift of Mr. John S. Newberry, Jr.
1951/1.31
Centered on the page in this print are two figures in identical dress. They have white undergarments with maroon tunics and kilts that are trimmed in blue, and capes, black on the interior, lined in orange, and a orange and blue motif on the back, as visible on the left figure. The tunics have white fish-shaped attachments at the bottom hem and on each, at the chest, is a symetrical floral motif. Their boots are back with maroon and orange detailing, and have a white spur on one of the two boots. Both figures' faces are covered and they wear tiered, cone-shaped hats. Each figure holds a unique item, on the right a white ball and on the left a pole with blue, orange and maroon streamers coming from a blue disk.
