Lakota Crafters Tanned Elk Hide Robe Painting by Evans Flammond
A tanned, finished elk hide (superior quality) named by the artist, "Horse Nation." He uses only earth pigments on all of his hides or robes. Alive with numerous traditional symbols of his people - the Lakota Sioux.
This unique, one-of-a-kind piece also is marked with the artists signature trademark of silhouetted eagles. Eagles in art represent the Great Spirit who watches from above.
The artist chose this hide because of its quality of even color and exceptional tanning.
Mr. Flammond creates a diverse collection of art and traditional-styled crafts including not only hides by knives, drums and more. His unique and distinctive gift of interpretation also emerges in his much sought after paintings. He operates out of his studio on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.
