This portrait of the Indian Chief was deeply inspired by the ghost Dance . The ghost Dance was a way for the native Indians to keep their culture & shamanic beliefs alive .
I mainly used earth pigments in my Palette of colours. The main area of focus was the face & feathers. Capturing the spirit of crazy horse was of paramount importance which I feel I have achieved. The painting took three months to complete.
