Sitting Bull

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.
