This came from a very reputable collector that owned a highly important collection of antique and ancient artifacts. They were a constant world traveler with an emphasis in the Asia, Central America and Middle East.The clothing of Native Americans was closely related to the environment in which they lived and their religious beliefs. They developed diverse styles of clothing depending on the region they lived in and the climate. Buffalo and wolf hides were made for clothing. But in the coldest areas, warm trousers, hooded anoraks and mittens protected people from freezing temperatures. Despite the vast differences in climate and clothing styles, Native Americans had in common the basic notion of living in harmony with nature. Most Native American people lived close to nature and believed that animals had spiritual powers and strengths. Many believed that by wearing parts of an animal a person could gain some of that animal's power and strength. Wearing animal skins became more than just putting on a form of comfortable and durable clothing. It became a part of Native American Indians' religious practice and a way to improve oneself. The animal they chose usually said something about them or a quality of that animal they sought to have. The amazing details of this handmade necklace can be seen.
