Description

Mabel Dodge Luhan seated cross-legged and
wearing a turban. This image is similar to the one in the set from 1915. Dodge is again drawing on some of the middle eastern and Native American texts and art she had encountered in her travels. Dodge was enthralled by notions of mysticism while also not completely understanding them. The way Dodge dressed was an extension of her desire to be open and receptive as well as unique and counterculture.
