Night Hunt


A painting of a Mandan Lieutenant. He is responsible for keeping his men fed when in battle. He is hunting at night, and is guided by the stars. He carries a lance that is covered in otter fur, for speed, the owl feathers keep in silent, and the eagle is for power and strength. His face paint is stars at night, which help guide him to hunt prey. His shirt and buckskin leggings are decorated with quill and beadwork. The painted lines on his shirt and leggings are coup war honor marks. The porcupine quills are wrapped around hair on his shirt and leggings, the red died horse hair means horse raid leader.
