Two Bears Ledger Art - James Redfox
"Two Bears " by Artist James Redfox of the Redfox Clan, Blackfeet, 2021.
This piece is drawn on a ledger from 1913 and shows two bears protecting a chief with hand beaded horse adornments, sun/moon, bottom shapes are mountains and rainbows (specific to the RedFox clan). The bears have arrows pointing to the heart which brings life. The Blackfeet never eat bear as they consider it a brother to them and will only wear the fur of a bear.
One of a kind, truly a special piece full of tradition, meaning and history.
