24 from one side to the other. It is made from thick hide, likely buffalo, that has been folded over a wooden hoop. The wood is secured with cane and the hide is attached with more hide. The original buckskin strap is still present and the paint is still quite vibrant. It has a geometric pattern with many colors along with 2 hair/fringe drops.

This piece has a lot of character and really demands attention when on display. It dates to the later half of the 1800's possibly carried through the reservation era as well.
