Let me state, this piece is not meant to be culturally insensitive.
And I'm really liking this piece.
Hand cut and designed.
Spray paint and acrylic on 30x33in canvas.

Thanks for the support. Your exactly right.
And the background is from an antique I found in a thrift store or dumpster diving I don't remember. I'm always looking for cool stuff.

I could see why people would thin this insensitive. But I actually really like it- it's a tribute to the original Americans, and even for what they are today. I know Native Americans of today don't get equal treatment even now, and that is depressing, and their history with the Europeans that originally came here is far from a happy one, but despite all that, I still find this a lovely piece of artwork. <3

in that case, I would kindly like to redirect you to these links:
