Swathed in a cloak of golden yellows accented by a bold blue patch of cloth, an Indigenous figure stares forward with a look of solemnity etched into his features. He adorns two large feathers in his hair, each equally as disheveled as the other. With brows furrowed and mouth downturned, we are prompted to contemplate what it is that this man has seen, what is it he ponders?
