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.
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.
