"Dust of Many Pony Soldiers" by Howard Terpning

Signed Limited Edition Giclee on Canvas, Unframed
90th Birthday Series
Image Size: 50 X 34 in.
Edition Size: 90

Although this painting concerns a column of troops on the search for Indians, Howard Terpning has chosen to look at the situation from the point of view of three Sioux warriors watching them from afar. The grave faces of these men are a mute reflection of what they see, and what the future portends for them and their people. Their outmoded armament, old flintlock rifles, indicates that they will not be able to mount an effective defense and that the eventual outcome will be their defeat. In that sense, this work foretells the destruction of a free people’s way of life.
