These beautiful drapey Wall Hanging comes with a special meaning. It is symbolic of the "Apron" which is an important part of the Native American Ceremonial Dress. The Artisan, Darlene Marshall remembers when she was a small child, her father told her: "When a girl dances correctly, the sound of shells and abalone make the dress sing." The fringe on the bottom of the hanging represents the "Singing Apron", and sways as the 'Hanging Dances".
