Howard Terpning - Transferring the Medicine Shield
The shield was considered a medicine object. A symbol of protection. And if it was to be exchanged, it had to be in a formal ritual. The buyer’s face would be painted in suitably ferocious fashion -- while the seller passed the shield through the fire’s smoke four times and used it to ward off imaginary attacks. They could now make the exchange with the energy of the entire tribe enhanced. - HT
