Description
Two boxed-off drawings are on the paper. In the first in the top half of the paper is a drawing of twelve tipis that appear to be placed in a circular pattern. There is an open area in the middle which appears to have people doing tasks in the area. In the tipi in the foreground there is a figure in a hat standing beside it, looking out into the assembled tipis. In the second drawing in the bottom half of the paper there is a similar narrative, though it only has nine tipis. The image is less detailed, and does not have any figures in it. verso: there are two sketches of rectangles, the one on the left has what appears to be dimension numbers beside it “25” and “30”. The second sketch is a bigger rectangle with two lines drawn in the length near the top edge and the other near the bottom edge.
