Description: 
Black Horse with Rider , ca. 1890-1910 Roan Eagle, Oglala Teton Sioux (Lakota) Pine Ridge, South Dakota Ink and watercolor on paper These two drawings show warriors who are not engaging in battle, but are celebrating their war honors in scenes depicting a festive occasion, parade, or procession. In this work Roan Eagle portrays the mutual accord that exists between a warrior and his horse--a classic equestrian image that is also found in European art. Both horse and rider are smartly outfitted in their war honors and are dynamic and robust—fellow warriors at their peak of power.
