Using signature Otoe/Otoe Missouria-style applique technique with boisterous and colorful beads, the artist transformed a subtle Hudson Bay blanket into a refined and prized Native Dance Blanket. This blanket was most likely commissioned by an Otoe/Otoe Missouria artist for an Osage community member. As the first piece of Otoe/Otoe Missouria art to enter Mia’s collection, this large, bold and beautifully realized Dance Blanket is a significant addition to our holdings.
