Hunters Desire: Painting by Laura Mountain on Caribou - LMH002


Hand painted on natural Caribou, this hide portrays images of big game animals on the wall of a cave. It is thought that ancient man would illustrate their most desired game animals this way in hopes that their images would translate into successful future hunts. They were typically drawn as robust, healthy animals, and sometimes drawn in groups to represent plentiful herds. It is likely the ancient artists took their illustrations very seriously and would use them in spiritual ceremonies before the onset of and important hunt.

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.

Approx. Size: 53"H x 40"W
