Crow Warrior #11

Hi you all!
This figure is a Crow belt wearer of the Big Dog society. These society's officers were expected to be the bravest of all society members and walk straight up to the enemy...and never retreat.
As a badge of the Big Dog society he carries a dewclaw rattle and a bunch of owl feathers at the back. As a belt wearer he wears a bearskin belt with legs and claws. He also has his hair fashioned as to resemble to bears' ears in two little bums at the sides.
Typical Crow are the looped necklace, the leggings (with quilled decorations and scalplocks at the sides), the hairstyle at the back and the long lance. The wolftails attached to his heels are mark of these who had counted coup.

Many of the features of these figure were reconstructed from written accounts rather than from pictures (there's none, as far as I know), like the bearskin belt, the hairstyle and the bunch of owl feathers. I have tried to make them so realistic or at least so close to other examples we know from other neighboring tribes as I could though.
I hope you like it!
