In Disguise


In Disguise is a commissioned painting. It is 36 x 30, oil on canvas. The Plains Indian warrior wears a Wolf Headdress with eagle feathers. His buffalo robe shows a painting of two warriors in battle.


The buffalo robe had many uses. One of them was for a disguise. When a rider was on horse back covered with the robe he resembled a buffalo when seen from a distance.

The wolf headdress served the same purpose. The headdress was often used by scouts to disguise themselves.
