Painted in 1885 by D.F Barry, this picture of Sitting Bull (Tatanka Iyotake) the Native American Sioux chief, represents some one who is powerful and someone who could take charge. I chose this image because he was a leader of a tribe that still exists today.
In the image, Sitting Bull is in a dominant pose. He also has a stern expression which could indicate sorrow of a deceased loved one or anger too.
He is dressed simply indicating that he is not a materialistic person but on the other hand the feather does represent value of his culture and tradition.
His whole personality from this particular picture is seen as weather- beaten.
What I personally like about this image is who he was is shown in the image - strong powerful and wise.
Sitting Bull was seen as one of the most well known and iconic Native Americans of the 19th century.
