There is a chin strap attached to the bottom of the cap that is made of a single strip of skin. One side of the cap has a carved piece of abalone in the shape of a cross or an "x". The abalone is attached with a piece of thin skin wrapped in sinew. There is also a white, circular shell on top of the abalone. On the opposite of the cap, there is the same type of white shell in a rectangular shape attached to the cap with a thin piece of skin wrapped in sinew. At the end of this thread, the remains of a feather are present. The keratin center of the feather is all that remains. The painting on the cap, on the side with the abalone shell, depicts a human figure in a geometric/triangular design in brown and yellow. Underneath the figure, on the bottom of the cap, a repeating triangular design in yellow and brown is present. Above the figure on the top of the cap, a blue, flowing design is present, perhaps representing water (?). On the opposite side of the cap, with the rectangular white shell and feather, the same human figure is present, this time, painted in blue and brown. Underneath the figure is the same triangular design in brown and yellow, as well as a boat shaped figure in blue and brown. Above the figure is a zig zag design, starting from the top of the hat, coming down to the figure, possibly representing lightning (?). The top of the cap is painted with brown and yellow stripes. The cap appears to be the same one illustrated, along with bag and figure # E432868, in "Medicine cap and fetich - Apache", plate facing page 40, in The North American Indian (1907-1930) v.01, The Apache. The Jicarillas. The Navaho ([Seattle] : E.S. Curtis ; [Cambridge, Mass. : The University Press], 1907. See pp. 40-41 for explanatory text.
