The subtle beauty and inherent symbolism of native American designs have made them among the most powerful and original art forms of the Western Hemisphere. Now these exquisite indigenous motifs have been skillfully adapted into stencil form by noted artist, designer and craftsman Ed Sibbet, and can be used to decorate walls, floors, furniture, fabrics, tin, leather, almost any surface.

Clear, easy-to-follow instructions show you everything you need to know about using the stencils, from cutting and mounting the plates, to tips and advice on techniques, materials, and maintenance. The method is easily mastered and the projects are all quickly completed. Strong manila paper (printed on one side only) and wide margins make these 58 authentic designs especially durable stencil plates that can be used again and again.

Included in this collection are excellent examples of geometrics, animal representations, animistic deities, warriors, and other intriguing motifs based on authentic American Indian designs from several tribes including Crow, Hopi, Pawnee, Choctaw, Apache, Pueblo, Sioux, Zuni, Blackfoot, Creek, and others.
