Earth and Sky by K Henderson

Earth and Sky, 36 x 30, oil on canvas

This Plains Indian wears a beaded shirt. His shirt is painted Red (the color of the earth) and Blue (the color of the sky)
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. This is considered braver than killing from a distance.
