Original. Charcoal pencil on Strathmore paper.  Inspiration for this stunning North American Indian drawing was from the brilliant 20th century photographer, Edward Curtis.  The tribes were a vanishing race so with the help of a $75K grant from J.P. Morgan, Curtis photographed the tribes and amassed a huge library of their photos immortalizing this culture.  This particular man, De Gizzeh-Rolling, was photographed in 1906 by Curtis.  It was taken after the American government put him on the Reservation.  The look of pride remains but most likely, resignation.  If you are a collector of Southwest Art, this is for you !  Framed and wired and ready to hang in your living room.  I ship with the assurance of FEDEX.
