    Ken Williams – Pink Elk Dreams

    ,
    Ken Williams: Pink Elk DreamsA stunning bag by Ken Williams, award-winning Senca/Arapaho artist.The design is a whimsical depiction of an elk of varying shades of pink and raspberry, outlined by 14K-infused gold beads. The teardrop beads hanging down across the top are faceted Burmese rubies, separated by 14K metal gold beads and flatter faceted Burmese rubies. The two loops on the sides, holding brass bells, are strung with the flatter faceted Burmese rubies as well.Contemporary faceted beads cover the majority of the bag itself. Vintage beads include the dusty pink ones across the top of the bag, as well as all the large blue and pink beads. The eye of the elk is a faceted pink vintage crystal. The vintage red beads with white centers running horizontally near the top are know as red hearts.The tabs on the bottom are v-shaped, representing elk hooves. All leather is smoked, brain tanned. The artist created pink and red yarn puffs to adorn the side strands of large vintage blue and hexagonal pink beads. The edges of the leather are adorned with vintage pink beads topped with tubular gold beads. An abalone bead adorns the bottom of the wrist strap.The faceted beads sparkle from any direction, making this a wonderful piece of art to behold. The ruby beads add a richness of color that lends a counterpoint to the brighter colors across the bag.The back of the bag is pink trade cloth, and the strap is lined with blue trade cloth. The inside of the bag is lined with patterned cotton cloth.The hexagonal shape of the bag is reminiscent of vintage bags made by the Iroquois, in honor of the artist's father, a member of the Seneca tribe.Bag is 4 3/4" wide x 6 1/4" high. Total height, including strap and tabs is 14".This bag can be opened by releasing the knot at the bottom of the wrist strap. It can be utilized sparingly for very special occasions.

    Turtle shield

    A brilliant creation by Molly Murphy, an award-winning artist. The color scheme is striking, and the hand dyed wool creates color variations that lend the surface more depth than would a flat color.Artist's concept statement: "This piece is a sculptural version of an umbilical fetish. In many Plains cultures the umbilical stump of an infant was saved and put in an elaborate beaded fetish (usually in the shape of a turtle, sometimes a lizard). This was to be kept with the child until about age six when more independence from mother was appropriate. Then the fetish was given back to the mother to keep the bond between mother and child safe. The idea is to create a form of protection in the shape of the turtle around this last link to maternal safety. The turtle is often a symbol of safety, protection, longevity, and feminine reproductive powers. Turtle symbols are used to evoke images of water, safety, and support."In this piece the window panel frames a pattern of squares that imitates turtle shell patterns. This panel folds down to reveal the turtle shell pattern as the center of a larger four-directions cosmology symbol. On the corners are two abstract damselflies (or dragonflies) in keeping with the water theme. It may seem random, but while thinking of this piece I was reminded of a lullaby in Lakota I heard where the baby is called little baby bug, little dragonfly. So I wanted to add the damselflies cruising the water line."Hand dyed wool, horse hair, metal findings, Czech glass trim beads, Czech tri-cut beads, silk, Japanese seed beads, Czech seed beads, interfacing, aeronautical plywood, Nymo brand nylon thread, jeweler's magnet.12" wide x 11 1/2" high when fully extended, from top of hanger to bottom

    Lakota Paint Kit

    ,
    Emil Her Many Horses is an exceptional beadworker and artist. He has won awards for his contemporary interpretations of traditional ceremonies and rituals. This paint kit includes a parfleche-style rawhide container which holds pigments, palettes and painting bones.The artist was inspired by two items he encountered in his positions as curator. The first was a painted parfleche paint kit at the S D Buechel Memorial Lakota Museum in Saint Francis, South Dakota. The second item was a beaded cowhide container with hair still on that he encountered at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian, where he is an associate curator. Her Many Horses combined the two concepts into one beautifully designed and executed package that resonates with beauty and tradition.The parfleche is made from dry-scraped rawhide from Wyoming. The pouches are made from brain-tanned deer hide. The hand-dyed wool has a white border reminiscent of saved list cloth that was popular with Indian clothing makers in the 19th century. The six pouches of earth paints represent the colors that were traditionally used in Lakota hide paintings and parfleche containers. The beads include old French seed beads that the artist had saved. Other materials include brass sequins, dyed horse hair, tin cones, turtle shells, and bone "paint brushes" made from cow hip bones. The cloths on which the artwork is displayed were chosen by the artist for their resemblance to traditional cloths that were used from the 19th century on.The parfleche is 11 1/2" long x 8" wide x 7" high. The pouches (filled with pigments) are approximately 3 1/2" x 2"; the turtle shells are approximately 4" x 2 1/2".

    Red Bird Beaded Purse

    ,
    "In 1876, Red Bird was born Gertrude Simmons in Greenwood, NE - the same year as the Battle of the Little Big Horn. She was born to a Yankton Dakota mother and a European-American father. Her Dakota name was Zitkala-sa, meaning "Red Bird". She attended the Quaker school for Indians in Wabash, Indiana; Earlham College in Richmond, IN; and a music conservatory in Boston. In 1902 she married Raymond T. Bonnin, also a Dakota, and had a son."I was impressed by her photo and the story of her life. She was a remarkable woman of great accomplishments, professional writing and talent with the violin. Simply beading her portrait is but a small and humble homage. This woman gave twenty-five years by using her intelligence and gift for words in an organized effort to benefit the greater indigenous community. She is a role model and a muse. I admire her. To me she represented a change in indigenous life in how she lost her place in the Dakota world without finding a comfortable place in the white world. And I do understand just a little of how it feels. A woman who came from a warrior society has proved that that in her case the pen is mightier than the sword.""I have beaded the bag to be monochromatic in color. It can be displayed on the wall or worn during a special occasion. Other beaded bags of mine of similar design have been awarded first and second place awards at Northern Plains Indian Art Market Sioux Falls, SD and an honorable mention at the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market Phoenix, AZ."Karen BeaverMaterials: white buckskin leather, solid brass beads, brass hawk bells, antique green (watermelon) beads, cloth, and glass seed beads (size 13 charlottes, size 14, size 11 delica white satin and 24k gold beads).Bag is 7" x 5 3/4"; 14" x 7 1/2" including fringe (excludes strap)

    RezPride/RezGirls Beaded shoes

    ,
    Artist statement:"I make beaded tennis shoes because through the ages Kiowas have always adorned their footwear. Making beaded tennis shoes is simply a continuation of something started long before me: the idea that personal adornment can be an expression of self, of society, of tribe, and of humanity.I understand the immediate appeal of beaded tennis shoes - they are whimsical, fun, and familiar. However, my intention is once the viewer is comfortable, to tell a more complex story of contemporary Indian life with the beaded illustrations. Most of my tennis shoe stories deal with our living history, culture, society and daily life through imagery from a particular dance or custom. In some way then the viewer becomes educated, even if only sub-consciously, to the fact that we, as Native people, exist in the here and now and not as caricatures and stereotypes but as real and multifaceted human beings.The story then of all of the shoes I have made is that of survival from genocide. We, as Kiowas, have lived through a violent, dangerous, awesome, and proud history, and I believe in some way these shoes can stand as testament to our survival not just as people, but also of a material culture that expresses our lives and values as Kiowas in the 21st century. The beaded tennis shoes I make are my hopeful and joyful expression of the continuance of the Kiowa people."Teri Greeves,Kiowa2009These shoes were featured the Fuller Craft Museum's exhibit titled "The Perfect Fit: Shoes Tell Stories".11" x 9" x 3 1/2"
