Al started a new sculpture a few weeks ago that is coming along great. This Indian has a full war bonnet, and a Stone Spirit around his neck. In trying to keep everything authentic, the war bonnet will have a certain number of feathers, old brass bells, and wool trailers on the sides. His war shirt has bead strips on the shoulders, and he is wearing his own rock medicine. I love the way Al does feathers in his sculptures. Whether they are on a bird, or part of a war bonnet. He takes such great pains to make sure every single feather is different. Because they are. Then giving them color with the patina, that just makes them that much more fantastic. This promises to be another truly wonderful piece.
