"The space separating the sky [the dark section at the top of the tipi] and world [the dark band at the bottom of the tipi] is the place for the vision painting, which is usually of an animal figure. The space represents the other world the tipi originator temporarily entered during his vision." (Nabokov 164)

Note that there is no animal figure on this tipi; instead this section is black.
