Talk of the Tribe
Painted on caribou, this is a traditional story hide depicting the characteristics that make up a typical tribe. The symbols are taken from the Plains Indian culture and represent the sun and eagle feathers. After the Spanish introduction of the horse they turned away from farming to horse back hunting and battle. However, they did still cultivate maize, squash, and sunflower.
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.
