Original Ledger Art - Changing Ways of Living / School Map
623Seven Fires Art is pleased to offer this epic work of Ledger Art by Lakota Artist Merle Locke.
School Map ~ Changing Ways of Living
An absolutely incredible piece by Locke signed and dated 2019: Ledger Art on a pull-down schoolroom map, 1957 edition, entitled Changing Ways of Living. What makes this piece so meaningful is that the map itself shows migrations and changes in civilizations from 3000 BC to 1 AD and of course ledger art always addresses the western migration and confiscation of Native homelands by the white man. Locke has done a beautiful job of painting this interesting document.
