Original Acrylic on Canvas - Legends and Heroes
Seven Fires Art is pleased to offer for sale this beautiful work by noted Lakota Artist Merle Locke.
Legends and Heroes
Signed M Locke OLA and dated 2022, this 24" x 36" acrylic on canvas is at once sweet and powerful. Locke paints his interpretation of the famous portrait of Sitting Bull with the Monarch butterfly in his hat over a beautifully executed buffalo skull with an American flag design. This time, instead of dragonflies, Locke adds seven Monarch butterflies surrounding the skull. Two sets of beautiful feathers flank the skull and of course the full sun is represented, taking a subtle but central place in the painting. While the portrait and the butterflies are unusual for the artist, more uniqueness comes from the pink and blue background that belies the power of this work.
