Painted by Non-Native American artist Dan Chapman, Sturgis, SD.

Tasunka Witko - Crazy Horse - was one of the greatest Lakota/Sioux Chiefs. His name personifies the bravery, wisdom and spirit of the legendary Lakota/Sioux warriors.

A member of the Oglala Lakota Oyate, Crazy Horse painted his body with symbols of Thunder Beings. Hail (the white and blue circles) and lightning (the yellow slashes down the center) are manifestations of these beings. The red color and the center cluster of feathers symbolize the red-tailed hawk feather tied to the hair of Crazy Horse before he rode into battle. The center imitation eagle feather is a reminder of the lone feather Crazy Horse wore.

Length 42 | Width 21 inches
Length 106.7 | Width 53.3 cm
Length is measured from the top of the shield to the bottom of the hanging feathers on the blue wool trade cloth drops.

Crazy Horse Shield

my entire home has Native American art and Crazy Horse has a special place for me. I have a beautiful large framed picture of of Crazy Horse and added his shield next to it. I have a special friend that is a gifted artist and she said she will make a special description plate to place under this shield that describes in detail every symbol on this shield and looking forward to adding this unique description under the shield for a full understanding of each piece, color and symbol on his shield. I'm very happy with the details put into this beautiful Crazy Horse Shield. Thank you
