‘Woman of the Sioux’ depicts a Sioux woman in typical dress of the 1850s. Her hair is unbraided, indicating that it has just been washed. I felt that the long, soft hair enhanced the pose. The small wooden bowl beside her is a simple eating bowl used during that period. My primary goal in painting this hauntingly beautiful woman was to create a mood.
