Photographer's Note

For my 100th posting, I have chosen this view of the merger of two sculptures and two holes at the National Museum of the American Indian. We are looking through a hole in the sculpture in the foreground, and then through a hole in the wall to view a second sculpture in the next gallery.

The collections of the former Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation, form the cornerstone of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian. Assembled at the turn of the twentieth century by wealthy New Yorker George Gustav Heye (18741957), the collections are distinguished by thousands of masterworks from throughout North, Central and South America. The Smithsonian constructed a new museum building on the Mall in D.C. to house the collection, the building's design reflecting several important Indian motifs.

Technical: Cropped to remove distractions on each side of the foreground sculpture and to center the sculpture, lighting levels were adjusted, contrast and sharpness were applied, and noise was reduced.
