Approx. Size: 35"W x 50"H
Painted on caribou hide, this design represents the Chilkat style. It is outlined in soft leather fringe and mother of pearl buttons.
The Chilkat are one of many clans of the Tlingit people. The Tlingit inhabit the Pacific Northwest mainland and islands. Their artistic style is easily recognizable with bold black lines, animal/human like creatures, and fragmented designs.
The Chilkat where known for their beautifully woven blankets. They would often sew mother of pearl trade buttons around their blankets or painted leather capes to signify wealth and status.
Hides are Hand Painted by Local Prescott Artist Laura Mountain. Laura feels it is important that the materials used are as genuine and natural as possible. Hand crafted arrowheads, shells, feathers, and various trade beads are hand sewn, wrapped, and tied with sinew. Ground earth pigments are mixed with natural bases and oils to produce her paints.
This painted hide is now part of a private collection. Orders can be taken from this original. Though every effort is made to keep the design as close as possible to the original, there will be slight variances in size, shape, color, and design placement. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks delivery.
