The Hour of Glory by K Henderson

The Hour of Glory, 30 x 30, oil on linen

This Plains Indian carries a shield with the symbols of hail and lightning. These symbols were meant to protect the shield bearer from the forces of nature and prayer for hail  and lightning to fall on the warrior’s enemy.

His hair is adorned with eagle feathers. His face is painted red, white and blue
