Lot Number: 98

This piece was inspired by the red and blue gear against the white horse. I love how the elements came together to represent so many pieces of American history. The horse, symbolic of the Old West but originally from Asia, is wearing a Spanish saddle and Crow designs stitched with Italian glass beads. The background “stars and stripes” were inspired by quilt patterns and use four-pointed stars, common in America before the the five-pointed style was introduced from Europe.
