David Wright artwork


The Warrior by David Wright


  About the painting:  

The woodland Indian lived in a fertile land of creeks and forests. To the men of the tribes fell the tasks of clearing the fields, making objects of stone, wood and bone, conducting religious rites, hunting and going to war.

A warrior, whose head has been partially shaved and painted with vermillion, wears quilled and beaded accoutrements, beaded leggins, and a matchcoat of blanketing adorned with gold lace, all of which reflects his native heritage and also his contact with European traders. Holding his instruments of war, the trade gun of French origin and a ball head war club, this warrior of the Algonquian Nation presents a proud and fearful image.

The model in this painting is Wes Studi, a Native American actor who is best known for playing "Magua" in the 1992 movie "Last of the Mohicans". The artist David Wright met Studi while working as an extra during the filming of that movie.
