Season to Dance- American Indian



Season to Dance 16 x 20, oil on linen

During the Cheyenne Sun Dance the Sacred Woman is painted 4 different ways during the ceremony. This is the First Paint. The white paint is a prayer that she may live to an old age, the time of white hair. The black line represents the straight road that leads to The Supreme Being.
