This design depicts a Pawnee Indian chief. Of particular interest is the character's face, which is not only complex to realize graphically, but also very expressive. As a point of reference, a regular scarf may be subjected to 25 separate colour applications to render a particular design; this scarf required 36 screens, of which 11 alone to convey the skin tones in the face. As a result, this design famously remains one of the most complex ever produced by Hermes.
Released in 1982, this scarf has been reissued numerous time thanks to the wild popularity of this design. It ties wonderfully, thanks to the Native American motifs playfully arranged along the edges and illustrated on top of apparent geometric lines, and due to the many releases in numerous colour combinations, this design is sure to appeal to almost anyone with a discerning taste.
