    Thank you guys. I'm glad you like her.

    Marc: The drinks are on you. :lol:

    Bluesking: Middle-aged? You surely meant 'ancient'! ;)

    Johan: the daddy's in the works. Only he's wearing a tartan. :)

    Eduardo: Little Moon is a little Crow girl. The Crow lived in the Northern Plains (Montana,, Wyoming) and were the distant cousins of the Sioux.

    As per the customs on the Plains, the child's costume was a scaled-down version of their parents' clothing, down to the mocassins and the leggings.

    ... You mean, like the Crow Army scout illustrated in the Osprey on the Plains Indians ? (Ill. by Richard Hook) ... That one does wear a Government pattern tartan loincloth indeed . :lol:

    Very unique subject matter, Quang! I, for one, appreciate the opportunity to paint something other than the typical Napoleonic or SS soldier.

    What are the options for the colors of her atire? Also, what time period are we looking at -- late 19th to early 20th Century? (Feel free to refer me to the instructions, which probably explain all this.)

    Mine's ready to receive a coat of primer. First time I saw this little girl I fell in love with her (not in the Dutroux way ;) ) Keep watching PF as I will run a SBS on her.

    Greetz,

    Indeed, Steven! (y)

    The late 19th-early 20th cent. period is considered by many as the most representative of the Crow art. To the Crow people, it was a time of peace (the Indian Wars were over) and prosperity (they became successful farmers). That would explain the richness of their art at that time.

    After that period, they began to incorporate external influences (Euro-American and other native tribes) and in turn lost some of their specificity.

    It was also the most documentated period of the tribe's history thanks to the photographs of Richard Throssel.

    As for the color of the dress, the most common was indigo stroud cloth with red triangle at the neck. There was another option: red cloth with bright green triangle (YUK! :lol:).

    The elk-tooth dress became quite popular during the reservation period and was often copied by the other Plains tribes (Lakota, Nez Perce,...) with some minor variations.

    Quang, Great sculpting, I love the subtle angle to the feet and the way they are turned in a bit. It is nice to see this little cutie available to paint. I just may have to do one for my Daughter.~Gary
