this is part of a series i am doing on indian beliefs hope you enjoy my painting
the land...... was put here for us by the great spirit
and we can not sell it because it does not belong to us
You can count your money and burn it within the nod
of a buffalo's head
but only the great spirit can count the grains of sand
and the blades of grass of these plains
As a present to you, we will give you anything we have
that you can take with you but the land....... never

a very fine painting and portrait.as a kid i thing i imagined native indians this way.but living in europe never had the chance to become to know one of this wonderful people.
i see a lot in his face -and the face looks like it has seen a lot of good and bad on earth.
great work and hommmage.i look forward to that series in any case.
