Museums don't know everything.
In 2006 was asked visitors to tell us what they knew about this object.
We asked people to write a brief label about this object: a memory, an interesting fact, something you notice, even a poem.
Todays hobbies are linked to the past. Today they are generally for fun, in the past they had more meaning.
It makes a person wonder how the ancient people of the past used their natural resources to create such beautiful colors. They weren't so uncivilized after all...
very difficult indeed-
this art form takes extreme patience. you need to be very precise when cutting the length of yarn and then place it accurately next to the last piece placed. The piece on display is practically perfect! It must have taken a lot of time.
people in the past made many of things like this they were very talented and that is what cultures of the world grow off of
I think it is painted and it is coored with yarn. it is beautiful
i like all the bright colors
this painting is colorful, and unique. It has a smile in the middle

I think it is celebrating a holiday.It is interesting. It's Indian.
It reminds me of parties my school used to have that celebrated other cultures. I think it is beautiful.
Woh, this is one trippy picture.
It looks like something they made to worship their gods. maybe it is part of a ritual.
I think that this is a very beautiful and intricate piece of artwork. It was thoughtfully created and designed with much time and effort spent on details and patterns.
a hidden story
old time glory
a snapshot of a culture past
the price was paid
the spirit of a people last
It has a big smile.
Who-Are the Hoo-i-chul

one word, WEIRD
the center of it looks like it's laughing
the goal of art is to disrupt.
Greens, yellows, reds, and oranges

i like how they used lots of colors.
They used pictures (called pictographs or petroglyphs) to tell about their lives, their day, and their parties, activities, and hunts,etc.

It is very detailed, it has a cultural look to it. the colors are bright and they use a lot of controdictory colors
Look at the intense green colors or the avian-like archer midway through the right side of the painting. Far out and groovy, eh?
