Sings to the Buffalo

Healing Moon by K Henderson

Sings to the Buffalo, 36 x 24, oil on linen

According to tradition some people were gifted by spirit helpers to use a special song to lure buffalo into a  buffalo pound  which was a huge corral with walls covered by the leaves of thick bushes. As he sang, he used a drum. The song enticed the lead buffalo cow to bring her herd into the enclosure.

This painting is inspired by a 1880’s photograph of a Cree Indian who was said to have this gift.

Forsaken

Forsaken by K Henderson

Forsaken, 30 x 20, Oil on Linen


This Plains Indian Has his face painted white. The Coup Mark (hand) painted on his face represents 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.

Destiny Giclee Print

This Plains Indian is wearing a scarf slide made of German Silver.  When fur traders first made contact with  American Indians they traded small items in exchange for furs. Silver objects were one of the items that were popular.
Eventually, items were made expressly for the purpose of trading. Around the mid 19th century these items were made from “German Silver”,  an inexpensive silver-white alloy containing copper and zinc and nickel.

Three sizes of Prints available: 19″ x 23″, 15″ x 18″, 10″ x12″  Image Sizes are Approximate and not exact! In addition, there is a 1/2″ white border around the image so the print can be easily matted. This is a Giclee Print on high-grade Epson Enhanced Matte paper.

The giclée fine art print process is able to reproduce the detail and essence of the original oil painting but at a more affordable price than an original K Henderson Painting. The images are printed on high-grade Epson Enhanced Matte paper. They are shipped  in a heavy weight 3” mailing tube by Priority USPS. They are not framed and not mounted
