jul 22, 1895 - Painted elk hide

Description:

Painted elk hide
Attributed to Cotsiogo (Cadzi Cody)
Eastern Shoshone, Wind River Reservation, Wyoming

Since the Shoshone people lacked a written language, this piece was used in tandem with oral traditions to record history. The use of elk hide is similar to the European's use of vellum for Bibles and illuminated manuscripts.
