Comanche Hide Shield Auction



2015-07-06 11:45:39

This fantastic Comanche shield is made from a very thick buffalo hide and decorated with bright and vibrant imagery. The pictures are thought to represent the sky in both night and day, although the inclusion of the floating bear and the triangles make take a smarter man than I to work out. This shield is just one of many interesting items in Sotheby's Arts of the American West auction, which takes place on Wednesday. This shield is expected to fetch $300,000-$450,000.
