Artist's Description

Portrait from the photograph of an Apache girl on display in the museum (c.1898 – public domain); the background image is my photograph of Pecos Pueblo National HIstorical Park ruins. New Mexico, USA

I kept going back to look at her, trying to capture that haunted, captive look behind the glass … eventually, I came to this composite.
