Artist's Statement: This is a reversible quilt. The feathered sun image on the front of the quilt was painted on buffalo robes and used in many ceremonies. When the buffalo robes were no longer available the ceremonial robe evolved into the star quilt. The fanciest of all star quilts for very special occasions were made from satin. Red Hawk's star shows the feathered sun image on the front with the satin star quilted through from the back of the quilt.
