Dance of the Butterflies; original painting by Joe Don Brave, Osage/Cherokee Artist.
This painting depicts my interpretation of the Fancy Shawl Dancers! Attending a lot of pow wow's as a vendor, gives me time to watch the nuances of each style of dances, and the Fancy Shawl ladies really become floating butterflies when the arena is empty and they have room to really step out! Fun to watch and exciting for the spectators!
Original is Acrylic on Canvas, 24" x 30".
The photo was taken by a cell phone camera, a professional photo is currently being processed and will be in place by December 25. Sorry for the confusion.
