A buckskin coat with a leather belt is holding the coat closed. A knife and scabbard are on the belt on his left side. A loop necklace and choker and a wool blanket are around his waist to his feet. On his right arm is two coyote pelts, and in his left hand is a hatchet style pipe. The Tule mat tipi is three layers high with three poles on the outside of the mats to hold them down. The door is made of a blanket with two wooden sticks. Behind the tipi are unidentified objects on the ground next to the tipi. All around the back of the tipi are cottonwood trees and brush.
