Hide Painting

Paintings on tanned bison, elk, deer, and cow hides were made to be rolled and transported for improvised altars or installed in chapels and churches as canopies over altars or before permanent wooden retablos and reredos were installed. Typical designs include Christian devotional images. The tradition was revived in the late 20th century, often with paintings in a smaller scale.
