Call of the Natives

I drew parallels between two categories of people who for a long time felt on themselves all the injustice of this world. These are the Native American Indians and all representatives of the LGBT community. The difference is that the first category fought against all injustice for a long time, but now their culture is practically destroyed. the second category is very successful in winning its right to exist openly and this is a huge victory as a result of centuries of humiliation. So what about Indians? I created a chief's crown that shimmers with the colors of the pride flag so that existing indigenous people find the strength to revive their traditions and their unique culture from the ashes. The prototype of the face was taken from the portrait of Sitting Bull because he was a great authority in the struggle to preserve the lands belonging to the Natives. The picture was created with a palette knife and thick layer of oil paint. From the every angle, it is very textured and bright.
