Crow Warrior #6

Hi you all!

Here is my favorite figure so far.

He is fairly old-stylish and very appropriated for the 30´s-40´s. He is armed with a very long stone-headed warclub (well suited for mounted combat) and a short bow carried in a bow case for bow and arrows made of otter fur and with a decorative pendant. He wears a loop necklace, older tubular leggings with long fringes and quilled decoration at the sides. His hairstyle comes from a painting by Karl Bodmer showing several Crow warriors and is pretty elaborated, with forelock, hair bows and hairpipes. At the back he wears the hair in an only big string as seen in some painting of Crow Warriors by Miller as well as in some Hidatsas painted by Bodmer (The Crows were originally an off-shot of the Hidatsa tribe so I suppose some similar styles could be shared mainly in earlier times).
