    _/_ ✯ Aunt Caroline Dye was a famous hoodoo woman or two-headed doctor who lived in Newport, Arkansas. A spiritualist as well as a root worker, for the crudely sketched aura around her head and the winged, dog-headed figure with its hand or paw on her right shoulder-like her name were drawn on the film negative - indicate that she maintained contact with other-worldly spirits. The standing figure may represent a "spirit guide" or the Devil's black dog one meets at the crossroads.✯
