Native American War Shirt
War shirts are beautiful artifacts. They were not just interesting and attractive pieces of outerwear, but rather a sign of social status.
Before earning the right to wear a war shirt, a Native American man had to prove himself as an outstanding warrior. Only those men who showed wisdom and strength, repeatedly unprecedented bravery in combat, were known for their selfless character, concern for others and the welfare of the tribe were honored with the right to wear this kind of shirt.
Beautifully detailed piece. 2-Sided garment has fantastic beadwork and horsehair tassels. 34" Long, 20" across the chest.
