Caption

Early Lithographic print by Brodtmann, from Dr. Shinz, "Naturgeschichte und Abbilldungen der Saugethiere" 1827/1840, with hand colouring. A "Maxuruna" chief from a warrior tribe - on the Javari river in Brazil - as observed by Johan Baptiste Von Spix. The Maxaruna correspond to today's Matis indians - often called the 'jaguar people" because their adornments are said to resemble the whiskers of a Jaguar (That is reported not to be a central theme in their culture however). The nose and ear ornaments here are made from the wall of a large snail shell. The feathers from Macaw. Similar decoration is still worn by this disappearing tribe today.
