    The "Siberian" figure was one of ten female figures Denise Wallace originally designed as elements of her 1995 "Women of the World Belt." Wallace designed the belt after a number of worldwide tours with other Native American artists. Speaking on her inspiration for the belt, Wallace said: "It has been a challenge to be part of a collaborative effort. It's not easy to me to walk out with other people and be creative... After our trips, I wanted to combine a belt celebrating women of various backgrounds interlinked together" (Dubin p. 163).

    In the 1990s, Wallace's belts were reaching an exceptional level of popularity, with regular special orders coming in for individual figures from the various belts. Looking to control the numbers of special orders, Wallace began designating which figures from each belt to replicate in small quantity limited editions (Ibid p. 196).
