This is an oil painting I did a number of years ago. It portrays two precontact Native American groups in Montana, ready for war, but choosing to make peace instead. The large shields which covered more of the body were used previous to the introduction of the horse.

The proprietor of Ewe Nla (Yoruba language for "Big Leaf") and me in 1996. I was working on an environmental sanitation research project, and staying with Mike and Mary Warren in the town of Ara, Oyo State, Nigeria. I painted this mural (this is just a portion) using charcoal and bits of leftover house paint, as a favor for the Warrens and the town. The woman is a Mami Wata (river goddess).
