"in small things forgotten"

this little image of some poor nameless child was part of the debris i've been sifting through -- less than 1" diameter, made for a locket, which is now missing --- he's probably a distant lee cousin, ca. 1880, and maybe i will be able to match him to someone when i get around to sorting a big box of lee family images --- the whole exercise has made me think of deetz's in small things forgotten: an archaeology of early american life
