The accomplishments, deeds, beliefs and spirituality of an individual Lakota were expressed through adornment of their personal belongings and themselves, utilizing natural and supernatural images. Through the development of his own artistic style, Paul Szabo expresses Lakota culture and religion with unique symbolism which appeals to all people, not just Native Americans. Although the designs come from the Northern Plains cultures, the Zuni and Hopi metal smiths have influenced his technique.
