Shoes: Boutique 9
The artwork I will share with you today is a very old piece from 1929. I received it from a family friend who was cleaning out a relative's estate. The story is that it was given as a gift to the lady in 1929 after she had been in the hospital. It is a bit faded and discolored, but I love it and it has a prominent spot in our den where I see it daily.
The things hanging on either side of the canvas are buffalo tails. I know that might disturb some of you, but these are authentic Native American made items. The Native Americans used every part of the buffalo and the tails were used as fly swatters. I would guess that they saw the buffalo using their tails to swat flies and so they adapted the tails for their own use.
I hope you are enjoying the art work and that you have a wonderful weekend.
