Notes The body of 'Me Happy' is a painted plaster model of a smiling Indian man. He has three braids made out of black string: one on the side of each ear and one down the back. He wears an earring fashioned out of a small piece of flat metal and a robe made of black cloth with painted decorations that simulate beadwork. His moccasins are painted brown and are incised with geometric and linear decorations.
