Description

Folded hide parfleche bag with painted geometric designs in red and yellow. Two folded panels are edged in red pigment with a row of three diamonds on either side. Between the diamonds are three rectangles, two of which are painted red with unpainted triangles. Beneath the folds, the surface is painted with two long red lines. Between the red lines is a design of diamonds joined end to end flanked by circles. Some ends of the bag are stretched and circles are punched. Straps are inserted through the center of the parfleche.
