This magnificent Lakota horned headdress signifies the great bravery and honor of the man who wears it. Each eagle feather is an honor earned in battle or in service to his people. The finely honed horns, ermines, ribbons, and beadwork all carry great significance.
I have allowed all but the man and his headdress to fade away into the pure white background, creating a powerful modern image of a historical subject.
Painted in oils on cradled birch panel.
Hand crafted modern black floater frame.
