Bear Shield Talisman by K Henderson

Bear Shield Talisman, 12 x 9, oil on canvas

The Plains Indians would have personal talismans that they could wear as hair ornaments, clothing adornments or hang from their shields, horses, doorways etc.

This painting shows a beaded crystal attached to a shield painted with an image of a bear. This would give the owner the strength and power of The Bear
