Beauty Speaks to Us
A visit to the Heard Museum had this Kiowa dress from around 1880. Made of hide, paint, glass beads, and cowrie shells its form shows off the decorated top, while the uneven edges give the dress movement. How they needled the embellishments I can't say. The exhibit, aptly named, is "Beauty Speaks to Us."
