The Lakota brave shown here relies on his horse for hunting and in battle. He is considered wealthy because of his many ponies. The horse mask his pony is wearing, gives him “good medicine” (good luck). It is painted with lightning bolts and brass buttons to blind his enemy, and is adorned with special feathers and antelope horns which will make his mount ride " fast like the wind.” The Plains Indians would also paint their horses with symbols denoting a brave deed or accomplishment, counting coup on their enemy, or just to frighten the opposition.
Opening bid and reserve is $2,500
