Straight-Up Bonnet

strEdition 50                      12″H X 4.5″W X 5.5″D                      $2,000

“This eagle feather headdress is unique to the Blackfeet Tribe which resides near my home in northwest Montana.  It was a wonderful resource for sculpting this feather study in which the portrait itself becomes incidental.  The Straight-Up Bonnet was a religious and war item worn only by very important tribal members and great warriors.  It could be transferred only through ceremonial ritual and the exchange of many horses and other valuables.  It is now worn only at special religious functions.”
