Fabulous vivid colors in this oval wall hanging featuring a Native American campsite with glowing campfire, blue smoke rising from it, next to a teepee along a body of water, maybe river, maybe a lake. Forest surround with tall evergreen trees. Behind the campsite, hillsides and then mountains with snow.
Colors of blues, greens, browns, oranges, yellow, white, shades of purple and pinks in the hillsides.

Oh, and the ribbon in some of the images? Is now gone, it just disintegrated in our hands. The new owner could easily replace with another ribbon if wanted.
