Golden Son Blue Moon

Golden Son Blue Moon, 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.

The red stripe represents a tear shed for those that fell in battle

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

This painting is available for purchase
