A Better Life

24" x 18" oil



Painting information:


Europeans introduced North American native people to wool and linen cloth to replace their clothing fashioned from animal hides. Trade axes and knives of metal supplanted those of stone and a black powder musket became desired over traditional bows and arrows.


A better life, perhaps, but loss of an independent culture - to become more and more dependent on the encroaching tide of white traders.
