The Delegate by K Henderson

This painting is a continuation of my ‘Top Hat” series. In the 1880’s The Powers That Be in the United States Government would invite American Indian leaders to Washington. There they were given gifts such as clothing, flags, hats etc. The recipient would then use these items as they saw fit. This hat is decorated with parts of a flag, an emblem from a helmet, ribbons and feathers

Whispering Spirit

Whispering Spirit R2 by K Henderson
Whispering Spirit, 30 x 40, oil on linen

This Plains Indian wears eagle feathers, shells and silver . His face is painted white with a brown hand print.
The hand painted on the face is a Coup Mark, a sign of bravery. To be first to touch the enemy was regarded as the bravest deed of all. It was even a point of bravado for a single warrior to rush in among the enemy and strike one with quirt, coup stick or gun before attempting to fire, thus risking his own life.

Sioux Shirt

Sioux Shirt by K Henderson

Sioux Shirt is oil on canvas, 30 x 40.

This painting is a bit different then my other paintings. When I paint my Plains Indians, I sometimes spend more time on the clothing than I do on the face so I decided to do a portrait of a shirt. This buckskin shirt is embellished with quills, beads, hair and paint.
