In this image, I juxtapose an enormous stylized painting of a Native American against a traditional Indian war bonnet. I abstract the face in the painting by cropping it just below the eyes so that the face seems to be unable to see. Barely visible in the painting are the ends of feathers that enter from the top of the frame. The war bonnet, however, is seen in its entirety, yet it appears much darker than the painting, as if lost in time. My juxtaposition tells the story of vibrant Native American cultural pride, yet a pride tempered by a history of war, oppression and suffering over the centuries.
