A magnificent brave is kneeling on the prairie with a skull in his hands. With his trusted pony behind him, his facial expression conveys the impending end of an era for his way of life. Gary has masterfully painted the iconic symbols of Native American life – the painted pony, the lance and shield, and the brave with his paint and clothing. The look of this brave’s eyes allows us to see a glimpse into his future for there are many signs of the changes coming.
