Though Lloyd Chavez is a Mountain Ute, he is posed here with traditional Shoshone Indian accoutrements. He is shown with a sparrow hawk tied in his hair, a seashell necklace draped across his neck and a deerskin quiver slung across his back. The animal hide stretched behind Chavez is covered in paintings depicting Indian dances, a buffalo hunt and a captured American flag. In the absence of a written language, such paintings recorded events in the life of an individual or family. Sometimes the paintings were done in calendar style, visually recounting the highlights of each passing year. The paintings often decorated a warrior's tepee, so that all who passed could recognize the great deeds of the warrior within. - JB

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, we ask that you include your location and phone number in order to get back to you during appropriate hours so we can accomodate the needs of people different time zones.
