Golden Son - American Indian

Golden Son, 36 x 36, oil on linen

In the Old Days pigments were made from vegetation, stones, soil and animal parts. These things were dried, ground and then mixed with with a binder (water, fat, saliva) to apply to the face and body.

This plains Indian wears a headdress made of eagle feathers, trade cloth, beads and ribbons
