Omaha Indian Beaded Wool Dance Sash

A museum quality 1890's Central Plains Omaha Indian finger woven wool dance sash. At 7" wide and over 84" long this four color banded arrow sash is an impressive piece of history. Thousands of chalk white glass beads have been lovingly interwoven amongst the hundreds of finely braided fringe elements that are over 2' long. This is a classic example of a centuries old tradition that began in the old Great Lakes region and proliferated onto the Plains hundreds of years earlier. The fringe is totally intact, yet there are four small areas where the wool sash has frayed but this doesn't detract from its powerful presence or visual display. This piece is associated with the Henry W. Andrews collection.
