Shield of Her Husband by Howard Terpning
This painting shows a Sioux Indian woman proudly carrying the shield of her husband. She is wearing a hide dress of the 1840 to 1850 period. The yoke is covered with pony beads and the sleeves are left natural, with no attempt at tailoring. Sioux women were allowed to carry their husbands weapons whereas the Cheyenne women were not.
