Native American holding a shield in one hand and a tomahawk in the other; two feathers in his hair and arrows on his back; wearing a bear claw necklace.
Before firearms became dominant, the club, the shield, and a bow with arrows was sufficient to defend one's hunting lands. This situation of course would not last.
Bill Nebeker studied at the University of Arizona in Tucson and at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. He worked at the George Phippen foundry and is a member of the Cowboy Artists of America.
This bronze is a departure for Nebeker who usually does not paint his bronzes.
