The original ink and acrylic on antique ledger paper, signed Merle Locke OLA and dated 2015, is a beautiful and charming example of traditional Native American ledger art. Approximately 14.5" x 6". Wide border brings the total size to 8" x 20", which can be trimmed to suit.
This print is available unframed or framed in a solid red oak wood frame with a generous 2" mat all around in dark (navy) blue, resulting in an impressive piece at a special savings.
Prints are framed under glass using archival techniques and acid-free materials including acid-free mat, foam core and adhesives.
Locke uses ledger paper #566 dated April 1899 from a Black Hills grocery store as a reminder of that terrible time in Native American history. Native artists have continued to use ledger paper, making it part of the tradition.
A couple in fancy dress stand resolutely on the Pine Ridge landscape. Four circling dragonflies, two eagles and a medicine wheel with feathers highlight this piece.
Buy more than one! These little treasures look even more beautiful when grouped together!
