Male Indian figure (who is most likely a Shaman) with closed eyes and open mouth suggests he is chanting. There are three teepees behind him. He is holding a rattle in his left hand.
Had this painting in perfect condition, its gallery price would have been $1,350.00.
Would recommend archival matting and UV blocking glass for its future framing.
