Native American Apache Painted Buffalo Hide with "Scalp"
Native American Apache Painted Buffalo Hide with "Scalp" by Bear Romero
This painted hair-on buffalo hide depicts a cow skull with medicine wheel and prayer feathers. The victorious warrior would have taken a scalp from a successful war party and attached it in this fashion to a buffalo hide to show his strength and courage to the entire tribe. This wonderful piece is finished with a horsehair bundle (the scalp) turkey feathers and abalone shell.
