Here is the cradleboard shown in this well known Curtis photo of a Nez Perce' Baby. It was quite a while ago I had this one in. But what surprised me was the colors on it. Often this can be the case, as what one thing looks like in a photo can be totally different in real life. But either way, you have to admit that is one cute baby (which did not come with the cradleboard :-) )
Greetings. I am using this Blog to show the artwork I do. I make original Plains and Plateau style Indian art, based on 19th century aesthetics and use authentic materials that were available in that time frame (1820-1900). I also restore and do conservation work of antique Indian art. Recently I have been exploring the world of art glass and the ways of incorporating it into a modern expression of established tribal art forms. Lastly, my other passion is horses. They often influence my work, and give much to my soul. I have quite a bit of material posted on here, so be sure to look back at the earlier entry's. Thank You for looking at my work, and I hope you enjoy it.
