Naive Drawing of Warrior in Orange with Hooked Club

Regular price $20.00

This is one among three small drawings I found together--one depicting three soldiers and the other a Native American warrior, but I'm not entirely sure whence this fighter with very long cap and two different weapons comes! All of the drawings remind me very much of paper soldiers I've found--made by mounting cutout drawings to bits of wood or cardboard such that they will stand up--though the ground under the feet of this guy suggests he was only ever drawn to live inside a ledger. Surely done by a young boy long ago, and I think just great.  

5 3/4" x 4 1/4", graphite and crayon on laid paper. Age toning from a prior mat, some smudges, and several creases: diagonal at left and vertical at right.
