"Horse Spirit"
1427m

36” x 36”

In Olden Days, American Indians would record events in pictographs. These could be paintings on cave walls, robes, ledgers, tipis or shields. The events would be legends or stories or personal accounts. When the painting told a story of a man’s own feats the pictograph would recall the Power that helped the man in a particular circumstance and ask that all who heard his story be blessed similarly by the Power.

This Plains Indian holds a shield telling of a horse raid.
 

this painting is consigned to my Santa Fe, New Mexico Gallery.
