General NotesA Native American man sits astride a white horse at the edge of a creek or pond. In the background are deciduous trees and bushes. The man wears a horned headdress with fur or feathers on it, and beaded buckskin shirt and leggings or trousers, decorated with fringe, fur, or feathers. The shirt has strips of geometric beading and fringe along the shoulders and outside of the arms, and a circular medallion of the beading on the chest. The man's hair appears to hang loose behind him under the headdress. The horse wears a geometrically beaded martingale with feathers; its headband is outlined with larger beads with two clumps of grouped feathers. The horse blanket is also patterned and seems to be mostly pale with a dark border on the outside.
