This Art Print/Poster of SITTING BULL is from my original pencil illustration. 


Sitting Bull (Tatanka Iyotake) was a Hunkpapa Lakota chief (1831-1890) and was the leader of the last great gathering of Plains Indians, including the confederated Lakota tribes along with the Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho. Together, they defeated the 7th Cavalry under Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer on June 25, 1876. The 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty had granted the sacred Black Hills of South Dakota to the Sioux, but when gold was discovered there in 1874, the U.S. government ignored the treaty and began to remove native tribes from their land by force. The Battle of the Little Bighorn was fought near the Little Bighorn River in Montana. Although it was a crushing defeat for Custer and the 7th Cavalry, the Plains tribes eventually suffered the loss of their land, their freedom and their way of life. Sitting Bull was killed by Indian agency police in 1890 on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation during an attempt to arrest him.


The colors of the print are clay red with burnt gold background.


I made this print with a white border so that you can either place it in an 8x10 picture frame without mat, or an 8.5x11 or larger picture frame, using your mat. (Shown with frame, not included.)


For 8x10 frames, just place the glass around the image and draw a pencil line, then cut that line. If you want to place in 8.5x11 or larger frame, there would be plenty of room for a mat.


The print is on quality poster paper, suitable for framing, with or without mat, in a standard picture or poster frame. (Frame and mat not included. Picture frames are widely available at most department stores.) The print will be shipped in an appropriate sized mailing tube.
