Artist's Description

Crazy Horse

Tȟašúŋke Witkó : literally “His-Horse-is-Crazy”
Synopsis

Sources differ on the precise year of Crazy Horse’s birth, but they agree he was born between 1840 and 1845. Crazy Horse was named at birth Cha-O-Ha (In the Wilderness or Among the Trees, meaning he was one with nature.)
Painted in a semi-abstract style, I wanted to convey the family oriented side of the man known as Crazy Horse. The two broaches, hanging inside his teepee, represent his marriage. His horse is returning alone for the last time. Crazy horse held a prestigious place in native history, historically and spiritually. His life as a family man is often overlooked and I think all people, especially military families, can relate to how he should be perceived. Not just as this brave warrior but as man with family and a concerned leader of his community. I wanted to capture the essence of not only his character but to visually express his visionary side.
