Fears Nothings

Fears Nothing by K Henderson  copy
Fears Nothing, 20 x 30, oil on linen

This painting shows a Plains Indian with a black hand (coup mark) painted on his face. This is 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.

It seems like forever since I posted a new painting. I hope you find this worth waiting for.

This Plains Indian wears a feathered Headdress with ribbons. Many years ago I was allowed into the Vaults of the Philbrook Museum in Tulsa. I was shown a beautiful old War Bonnet. What a shock to find that the crown was made from a Stetson felt hat!!
