medicine cape

I thankfully out-lived thinking I could sew and painted my medicine cape instead.

cool Sam... sorry to show my ignorance, but what's a medicine cape?

At first glance, I thought it was a macro-shot of the edge of a butterfly wing.

So very beautiful!

Loriann-- You never show ignorance when you show curiosity. "Medicine" means "spirit". Loosely put, you design and make a cape (or mask) to represent and protect your spirit. It's a completely intuitive art. I'd love to see yours; I know it would be beautiful. It's up to you...

Patrice-- Same to you.

I would expect, if it is meant to represent YOUR spirit, it would have a dog on it...no??

Jala-- the dog is my heart
