A miniature tipi (also tepee and teepee) comprised of stitched antelope and deer hide panels wrapped around long wooden poles decorated with metal cones and horse hair tassels, all arranged to create the traditional cone shape and secured with wooden fasteners. The exterior presents five horses of various colors - yellow, aqua blue and white, russet brown, yellow and aqua, painted in profile and trotting toward the left.
