DESCRIPTION

Image of two men (conceivably non-Native military men) wearing dark blue suits shooting at a Native American man on a yellow horse, who is shooting back. Gray paint splatters on background. Style is Plains Indian pictographic ledger drawing style, meaning it tells a narrative, and the figures are set in profile in a two-dimensional format, without background or indication of setting, with sureness of line. Matted on board.
