Bentwood and feather hanging art piece
During this past week I when I visited the Denver Art Museum, I was drawn, as I often am, to the hall of American Indians. A new section on modern art has been opened. Among some amazing paintings and sculptures was this hanging feather piece. I really loved the way the lights played in and out of the feathers.
A Manificent mult-strand fetish necklance given to the Museum
As I continued through the hall I saw the most complex animal fetish necklace I've seen anywhere. I have one of 5 strands which my husband gave me years ago and I cannot imagine the weight of so many carved stone fetishes in one piece of jewelry, though its beauty is exquisite.
Our life this week has coincidentally followed an Indian theme as this afternoon we will be taking our granddaughter to the final day of "dance with the Indians" at the annual Denver March Pow Wow. Around 2000 Indians in their customary regalia, representing tribes from both North and South America, will join the Grand Entry and then participate individually in the various dance categories. We look forward to it every year but this will be the first year we've taken any of our grandchildren. Photos tomorrow.
