Ermine and Eagle Shirt, Northern Cheyenne
Acrylic, 36" x 24"
The wearer of this boldly colored
shirt, with its rich dye and added
tails of red trade cloth, must have
been a fearsome sight in the mid
The labor-intensive quill wrapping
and applique, the ermine tails and
eagle feathers, and extensive use
of human hair speak of ownership
by a mighty warrior indeed.
