SIA Inspiration: Powder HornPosted: July 9, 2018
It’s Jen’s turn to host SIA, and she picked a very interesting piece:
This is an engraved powder horn from the late 18th – early 19th century. The style of engraving and the Wampum shoulder belt suggest “it was made by a Penobscot Indian, possibly for a Massachusetts soldier during the Penobscot expedition of 1779–80”, which is why Jen chose it, to honor the Native Americans after Independence Day last week.
You can see more details of the engraving and learn more about this powder horn here. The color scheme is mostly white/beige and black, but the engraving can provide a lot of interesting graphical touches, so it should be fun. Remember to send your outfits to Jen (firstname.lastname@example.org) by next Tuesday, July 17th. Enjoy!
