Fallen Warrior

7” in height X 10” in width - Framed

This design as a framed painting under glass won a 2nd place award and the Cecil Dick Master of Heritage Award at the 2001 Five Civilized Tribes’ Competitive Art Show in Muskogee, OK. This design was found on four matching fragments of a shell cup from the Spiro Mounds in Oklahoma. It was uniquely positioned so that one of the shell’s spines was used in carving the nose of the figure creating a somewhat 3 dimensional head. The original design had a large segment missing from behind the head and arms. I finished out the design by adding a leg, the apron and completing the background using the existing design as a guide. This is the only figure of its kind found in the Spiro Mounds collection.
