La ceinture flèchée et ses représentations dans l'art canadien des XIXe et XXe siècles : un symbole de taille

The arrow belt and its representations in Canadian art of the 19th and 20th centuries: a sizeable symbol
From november 28 2005 to february 17 2006

Modern art
A musuem piece as well as an object of popular culture, the traditional belt with an arrow recalls the runners in the woods, the time of the fur traders, the Métis, as well as the traditional costume of the Patriots. Its braiding method can be found nowhere else. Throughout time, the masters of this Canadian art -Cornelius Krieghoff, Henri Julien, Edmond-Joseph Massicotte, Marc-Aurèle de Foy Suzor-Coté, Henry Thielcke and of course many others - demonstrated the importance of this element in their clothing.
