Frank McCarthy could paint a bouquet of flowers and it would feel like you were watching the Daytona 500. Even this simple image of a solitary Cheyenne warrior scout captures all the drama of the epic west with only a single figure!
A buffalo hide served many purposes for the Plains Indian. It was a wrap by night. It went wherever its owner went, serving variously for warmth, protection . . . and for communication. A lone Cheyenne sends a message, a simple robe signal, to be understood as clearly and effectively by its receiver as our instant communications of today.
