Sacred Spirit by K Henderson

Sacred Spirit, 30 x 30 , oil on canvas This Plains Indian wears a headdress of feathers, trade cloth and beads. His face is painted blue which is a sacred color in some tribes. The hand on his face represents a battle honor. It is a Coup mark which indicates that he has gotten close enough to touch an enemy in battle. Native Americans considered this braver than killing from a distance. See more of my Western Art and American Indian paintings on My Website
