Description: 

Opposite the main wall of Osker Gilchrist's waiting room is a line of baseball-type caps hanging by clothespins from a wire stretched the width of the room. Feathers and other attachments adorn each cap. The combination of a cap’s color, its type of feathers, and its particular attachments imbues it with a specific power and ascribes to it a specific role in Gilchrist’s healing and conjuring process.
