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

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.
