Jacques has a German bisque head, with brown hair and blue eyes. According to Mrs. Gray, "The style of this costume in detail is that of the hunter/trapper of the Louisiana region." The buckskin Jacques is wearing is hand-tanned deerskin which was actually tanned by Native Americans and which Mrs. Gray was able to get through family contacts. Jacques also wears a muskrat cap; muskrats, which favor aquatic habitats and love to feed on both rice and crayfish, were common in Louisiana and often hunted for their fur.

Jean dAire was one of the most popular of the six figures and scholars have commented on the personal power and dignity of this particular...
