Through bold colors and a striking composition, the traditional regalia of this Native American chief comes to life, conveying a sense of cultural richness and pride. The intense facial expression draws the viewer into the chief’s world, while the presence of an incense stick hints at sacred rituals. The use of a plain, solid background allows the focus to remain on the captivating figure, himself a vibrant and geometric composition.
