Unknown artist, Kiowa, Southern Plains, North America, lattice cradle baby carrier, about 1910

Hood Quarterly, winter 2007

This cradleboard reveals the exquisite beadwork that epitomizes the Kiowa style of decoration in Native American art. The Kiowa developed what is possibly the most prominently known baby carrier in Plains art, the lattice cradle or cradleboard (popularly known as the “papoose”), which spread to the Comanche, Cheyenne, and Dakota tribes of the Central Plains.

Recent Acquisitions: Norman G. Jackson, Sharkman mask, 2004

Hood Quarterly, winter 2007

This beautifully carved and painted wooden mask by the Tongass Tlingit artist Norman G. Jackson brings to light a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional Northwest Coast themes and mythical stories. In much Northwest Coast art, painted, carved, or woven imagery is used during special occasions to proclaim and validate the status of ancestral clan crests representing mythical beings.
