Approx. Size: 59"H x 42"W
Hand painted on caribou, the symbols on this hide are adaptations of the Plains Indian tribes. To many of these tribes, the dragonfly symbolized protection and invincibility. Therefore, it was often painted on war shirts, war shields, warhorses, and teepees.
To the Navajo, Hopi, Apache, and other southwest tribes, the dragonfly represented transformation and life's ever-constant process of change, happiness, speed, water, or purity.
This hide is trimmed with vintage vinyl record heishi beads, leather strips, and exotic feathers.
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.
