Original Ledger Art - Under Heavy Fire, Light as a Dragonfly
Seven Fires Art is pleased to offer this handsome work of Ledger Art by Lakota Artist Merle Locke.
~ under heavy fire, light as a dragonfly ~
A very nice piece signed and not dated but believed to have been painted in 2019, showing a warrior with the protection of many dragonflies done on a ledger from the Weld County, Colorado Treasurer's Office showing taxes totaling $40.40 paid in 1895 by one L. S. Cornell for 7 Horses and 4 Cattle.
Warriors would take on the persona and movements of the dragonfly when running into battle since of course the dragonfly cannot be hit by bullets or arrows.
9" x 8". Unframed; custom framing is available, please inquire.
