Legend of the Plains
On ceremonial occasions intended to celebrate peace, some Plains Indians would dress up a prized pony with feathers, fringe, quills and more. A story is told about one gold-and-white spotted pony, whose natural colors were so striking that no paint was added; rather, it was adorned with prayer feathers tied to its mane and tail, and it carried a shield with crossed arrows symbolizing friendship and harmony. Artist, Joani Jiannine, included details that decorate "Legend of the Plains" that give it the beauty, mystery and power of a "peace pony." Resin figurine measures 6 1/2".
