Chippewa picture writing, Seneca mask, Eastern WoodlandsWPA - from the 1930s USA
The Chippewa people, whose pictograms are illustrated on this poster, is one of the largest groups of native americans. They have created something called a dreamcatcher. That, if hung above someone sleeping, it will capture and trap bad dreams. However, it os mainly used for children as the Chippewas believe that adults should be able to interpret their own dreams, good or bad, and use them in their lives.
The poster comes from the large-scale employment project Works Progress Administration, whom during the Depression in the United States, created jobs for nearly 8 million people in the period 1935-43. Besides being behind public construction projects. The WPA also created great art and culture projects, from where I have discovered some very interesting visual material.
I have improved the reproduction as I usually do. However, only ever so slightly. Partly to make the format suitable for the current frame dimensions and so marks, holes and dirty fingerprints no longer hamper the quite beautiful motif. Additionally, also to make the colors shine more like they did back during the depression in the US.
