Painted Horse




“An aptly-titled painting, this pictures a ‘pinto’ or ‘paint’ that is actually painted as well. The Plains Indians painted themsleves and their horses before going into battle; each had his own distinctive colors and designs, believed to give him mystical powers. ‘Painted Horse’ could also be the name of this Sioux Warrior.”
