DESCRIPTION

http://www.rushcolefineart.com/Indians.htmlA young girl from a southwestern pueblo participates in a ceremonial dance.  She wears regalia that is both old and new; some of it handed down for generations among the women in her family, some of it crafted solely for her use.The cape is one that her great-great-grandmother wore when she was just a child. The skirt and blouse and vest were all contributed by older members of the girl's family, as are the beads and feathers and jewelry. The maiden dances from memory, a familiar pattern that she was taught as soon as she could walk, placing her feet softly and deliberately in her very own deer skin boots.Click on link to view on website, then click website link to view closeup details.http://www.rushcolefineart.com/Indians.html
