The Head Dress of the Wappo Negro's, Ivory Coast, Africa

Presumably from the 'Pallas' voyage of 1774-75. With PAJ2028 and PAJ2040, this is one of three such drawings of pairs of African heads in this Bray group which suggest he may have seen the engravings of Maori heads by Sydney Parkinson, from Cook's first voyage, published in 1773. Unlike those, however, Bray's stop at the base of the necks with a stylized sculptural edge. The group also includes a number of single African heads in monochrome (PAJ2011, PAJ2039 and an evident pair, PAJ2032 and PAJ2033).
