«4 Colors» is a private on-line gallery, focused on authentically styled Native American reproduction regalia (insignia) of the Plains Indian military societies.
A large number of items (mostly war bonnets and jewelry pieces) are made by me — Maza Sapa (sometimes with a partial contribution of contemporary Native American artists), the rest — by a few of prominent Non-Native Plains artists. Each item is researched thoroughly, often based on actual museum examples or antique photographs, and all materials used are genuine and historically correct, unless stated otherwise. All of the Gallery items are completely handmade using traditional techniques with no machines and minimal hand tools, and are fully functional — they are ideal for ceremonial or social use, modeling props, collecting or for home decoration. Some of them are offered for sale or trade.
«4 Colors» is targeted for those who have an intrinsic affinity and a strong passion to the aesthetics of an old Plains Indian culture, as well as collectors of the North American Indians Artistry, and requires a leisurely, thoughtful viewing of photo and text contents.
The site is not suitable for stingy beggars, tight bastards, hipsters, mobile freaks and TLDR-folks.
