    Aunt Caroline Dye was a famous Hoodoo woman who lived in Newport, Arkansas. She was a spiritualist, as well as a rootworker, because the crudely sketched aura around her head and the winged, dog-headed figure with its hand or paw on her right shoulder were, like her name, drawn on the film negative---indicating that she maintained contact with otherworldly spirits. The standing figure may represent a "spirit guide" or the Devil's black dog one meets at crossroads.
