Old Elk and his Wife
Stansbury, Howard. Exploration and Survey of the Valley of the Great Salt Lake of Utah. Philadelphia: Lippincott, Grambo & Co. 1852.

This may be a depiction of Big Elk, the military leader of the Timponogots Utes, although possibly fabricated as he died of disease and exposure before the main portion of Howard Stansbury’s exploring party reached Utah Valley.
