PLAINS WARRIOR'S QUILLED HAIR DROP Antique Native American Artifact
Item location: College Park, Maryland, United States
Technical specifications, photos and description:
Here is wonderful antique from the Plains Indian. This porcupine quilled leather piece is warriors hair drop that was tethered at the back of the head and probably accented with feathers ermine tails etc. The 8" long piecealso bears similarity to the beaded drops used to hang from the ends of war clubs. think those were predominately longer and triangular in shape so feel fairly confident about it as hair drop. The Lakota sioux were famed for quillwork with geometric designs,so perhaps this is from them. As you can see the piece encountered the elements at some point and there is damage including missing and discolored quills. It would have once glittered in the sun in brilliant red,yellow, and purple. The darkened artifact has retained it's fascinating presence however! Note the beautiful "worms" beaded loops that trace the edges and are pretty much intact.The fragile piece needs to be preserved in shadow box where it will surely please it's next owner.☼ THANKS > + < ☼ > -:¦:- + < -:¦:- > + -:¦:- < ☼ > + < ☼ ✧☽✵⋆Please see my other Native offerings..... =>>========= x > > + < ☼ > -:¦:- + < -:¦:- > + -:¦:- < ☼ > + < ☼ ✧☽✵⋆
