Artwork Description

High in the Rocky Mountains of Montana a Blackfeet warrior sits sentinel over the approaches to his people’s land. The reports are a war party from a rival tribe is on the move in the area. Scouts have been posted at key locations throughout the passes. Movement below confirms the Blackfeets’ information to be true. The signal is given. An intruder is near! The enemy is coming!

The Hudson Bay Company trade blanket places this event as happening sometime in the middle of the 19th century, but that is about as much information as Z.S. Liang is willing to give us. “The viewer is meant to create their own story about what has or will happen,” says Liang, “Some of the best stories are those not told.”
