Description
Chamberlain quotes Baumann on page 444 of In a Modern Rendering: The Color Woodcuts of Gustave Baumann": "In the following and last pictograph, flying birds. One of these birds with a design suggesting stars and stripes makes a prophesy transcending the arrival of teh Spaniards. Like an old-time friend of mine, you may insist this design stems from the colonies; but here it is in a pre-Spanish pictograph."
