Description

Painted profile of a Native American chief wearing a traditional headdress. The chief looks slightly to the side, with a serious face and white eyebrows furrowed across dark eyes. He has striped war paint on his cheeks and chin in stripes of red/yellow/green with outlines of white. His headdress consists of a multi-colored band across his forehead holding up a circular shape of black outlined in gold on the back of his head. Hanging from either side are strips of blue cloth with white embroidery and ribbons that match his face war paint. Behind him is a fiery sunset background of orange and red with shadows. The edge of the gold on his headdress melts into the yellow of the sun behind him.
