Last prayer by milosr Last prayer by milosr
White man came, across the sea, he brought us pain, and misery, he killed our tribes, he killed our creed, he took our game for his own need. We fought him hard, we fought him well, out on the plains we gave him hell.


god, couldn't you hear our prayers?

Beautiful coloring and use of composition. The focus is more on the plain than on the native american, which is a nice way to keep the focus on the philosophy and contemplation of the piece. The colors are full of life, which emphasizes their belief in the great spirit flowing through all things. To me it conveys that there is still a sence of hope in the pleas of the man.

Being half Native American myself, I can really relate to this. *Most* Native Americans don't pray to God or gods... unless you're like me and actually have a secular religion (Methodism for me). However, sterotypical as he may be, it's to the point, and with the added text, it just slams home. The colors are amazing, and the simplicity of the work makes it all the more fun to look at.

Great piece. :+fav:

While the Native American depicted is somewhat stereotypical and not likely to be appreciated by real living Native Americans, the intent is appreciated. Very strong line work and use of color again, although I think perhaps a wider, more landscape view might have better served the earth theme.
