The Union

The Union, by Terrance Guardipee, Blackfoot artist.  Terrance paints in ledger style, using mixed media, on vintage ledger pages.  This page is from a lumber and coal supplier, dated 1909.  The painting shows a couple wrapped in one buffalo robe.  The robe has sun dance symbolism painted on it, with ghost dance buffalo heads and other elements.  She is holding a sun shade, and her dress is decorated in bright depictions of the sun.  Morning stars are visible throughout the piece.  Noteworthy is the suitor's black open-crowned cowboy hat, beaded in a floral motif.  This was a popular accessory among Blackfoot men on the reservations.    8.5"x 14".  Framed 24" x 18".
