Hand painted on caribou hide, this image symbolizes the importance of the sun to the circle of life. The sunburst represents the great soul spirit (the sun), which is the center of all life. The hunters' arrows point in the four earthly directions. The dots represent animal tracks. Typically the color red was sacred and represented warmth and blood (life).
The word wiwayakwacipi is the Lakota Sioux word for Sundance.
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.
