Описание в каталоге

For a discussion of painted robes see Conn, p. 139: "Before the critical confrontation between native and American military forces began on the plains, intertribal warfare had been a vehicle by which men established and improved their status within the tribe...To preserve a public record of these exploits, Plains men painted representational scenes on leather robes, tipi covers, and tipi linings...Its elements included episodic, non-chronological narrative content, precision in recording details of war equipment, and a stylization characterized by the flat two dimensional treatment of each figure. Horses usually appear at a flying gallop, with all four legs extended."
