This exhibit case documents and reveals the extensive amount of research that goes into the reproduction of a single photograph for a publication, as well as the use of this information to identify an important artifact in the collection. It also demonstrates how one researcher -- Joanna Scherer in the museum's Department of Anthropology -- discovered valuable information about this shirt, leading to its documentation as an important artifact within the museum's collection.
