Apache girl • Earth.com

In a photograph taken in 1900 or thereabouts, an Apache girl carries a woven water basket on her head. This is known as an “olla,” and the young woman must have been very strong if it was full of water! Today, these elaborately decorated yet completely functional baskets are highly prized by collectors. They can attract bids of thousands of dollars at auction. Photo Credit: C. C. Pierce
