Skeleton of a man.

Skeleton of a man.  His body has been deposited in a cave in a foetal position typical of early 'Plains' burials and symbolic of rebirth. It was believed that his body would return to the earth but his spirit travelled to the 'Other World' from where it came, or it would return to this world in human or animal form. Country of Origin: USA. Culture: Plains Indian. Date/Period: 1300 years old. Credit Line: Werner Forman Archive/ Plains Indian Museum, Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyoming USA. Location: 08.
