Pocahontas Rescuing John Smith
by Paul Cadmus 1939
When Paul Cadmus finished his mural for the Parcel Post building in Richmond, one of the indians was wearing a fox skin. Edward Rowan of the WPA's Section of Fine Arts came to believe that the head of the fox seemed to resemble the genitalia it covered and insisted that Cadmus replace it with an ordinary breach-clout.
After some back and forth with Rowan, Cadmus painted out the fox head before mounting the mural in the Parcel Post Building.
