Native American Indian

I took a three hour class at the West Glacier Rendezvous by Ron Adamson of this Native American Indian. I had finished the face in the class; the hair, braids, bead work and medallion were finished at home. The wood is cottonwood bark and is 4 inches wide and 16 inches long. I was going to put grooves in the feather but the the grain of the bark showed feather lines. It was finished with semi-gloss Deft. It is darker than the picture shows. If you are on Facebook you might want to look up Native American Indian - Old Photo. It has 172 photo albums and 422 photos by others featuring a lot of different tribal members.
