Native American Made Parfleche bag Rawhide with brain tan leather medicine bag deer pow wow regalia
Native American Made comes with Certificate of authenticity stating artist and tribe. This GORGEOUS bag measures 10" long by 13" tall I make my own rawhide from locally harvested deer and elk every fall. This is made from a doe harvested for meat in the fall of 2016. I used acrylic paint and authentic brain tan buckskin on this piece. The beads are solid heavy brass, not the cheap hollow pieces a lot of people use. Buckskin straps are a little over 23" on each side, total of approx 46" Wool side straps really complete this one of a kind piece, perfect for practical daily use, ceremony or your private collection. This item should never be exposed to water it will ruin it. Traditionally women painted Geometric designs and wore them. With the exception of the Warbonnet pattern, that was usually painted by women for a man's robe. Men traditionally painted story items. This is a story item showing a Paint mustang stallion out for a run. Black and white contrasting colors heading into the west representing the medicine in opposite. For geometric design meanings.... The women usually never revealed what the geometric meanings were EXCEPT to the buyer. This is what gives the piece its protection. I hold that secret, know your item's meaning will never be revealed to anyone but you.
