Spirit of Monterey Wax Museum- The Ohlone

Here in the Spirit of Monterey Wax Museum we see a couple of Ohlone Indian girls stretching animal skin on a large rack. Behind them is a rather mysterious man. The Ohlone lived on the northern California coast years before the Spanish settled the land, and these skins and furs had many uses.

The strange man behind the tree. He looks rather menacing.

A darker shot to show what the scene looks like in reality. This is but a small part of a larger tableau that highlights early California life before and during the discovery.
