Hand crafted, primitive painted elk robe/wall art for log homes/hotel/home decor

1,999.00

Plains style painted elk robe, pre-reservation era. Primitively processed and painted using earth pigments and animal glues. Paint has been distressed to create patina. Earth-pigment painting on nappy braintan does not lend itself to ultra fine lines as do more modern materials. Additionally, as with the originals, these robes may have bullet or sewn arrow wounds or knife scoring. These are handcrafted, primitively produced, one-of-a -kind works. The buyer should be aware of these facts. However, this is a fine piece and would make an awesome addition to a boardroom, museum or hotel lobbies, log homes, lodges, etc. It begs to be shown off! It looks bold and old!

*the artist has been an admirer of the American Indian since youth and strives to craft a unique work that both honor the skill and aesthetic sense of his heroes.
