            I think 3 of your eagle belts should cover the trade, don't you?

              I agree with Ron. It's a shame, it will more than likely end up that way.

              But it is Very BEAUTIFUL, and so is the other one thats 50,000.

                        I don't think so...... Don't that Flute player look just like Tommy Ware? And the "Gourd Dancer" looks just like one of the lt. governors from Taos Pueblo.....

                        Dang, and at $150,000, somebody sure thinks a lot of their own work. My question is this..... if you ain't got no gallery rep - especially in Santa Fe - to sell this thing for you, how you gonna expect to get that kinda cash on e-bay?

                        Plus, that painting's kinda like "pack whatever kinda skins dressed in their gear all in one picture." Apache Ga'an dancers and Pueblo buffalo & eagle dancers don't have anything to do with powwows or vice versa..... more like somebody went camera happy at the Gallup Intertribal Ceremonial, like about a million other tourists. Plus, that's way sacreligious and disrespectful to be painting some other tribe's dieties like that (I'm specifically talking about the Ga'an). Is the painter supposed to be a skin? It says she went to IAIA, but dang, last I heard, the folks at IA educated their students about such issues.

                        Dang, my signature says it all.......

                        Functionless art is simply tolerated vandalism.

                          I'm glad the artist chose "LIVING NATIVE AMERICANS" rather than not-so-living ones.

                            They reposted and dropped the price to $125,000 And the bank told me they would only finance $100,000:Chatter

                            Str8Dancer49 you have some good points. Most of us just looked at that price tag!!!!!!!

                              one of us should SUE the artist for using our likeness and making a profit and not getting permission. ;)
