Goes Ahead, Crow Scout
In the depiction of this piece, the overall design is reminiscent of traditional Crow imagery. 12 orange stripes denote his first coups on an enemy tribe at the tender age of 12. The 2 blue/white rectangles symbolize the 2 enemy horses that were taken on the raid. 4 triangles represent the 4 directions and the two larger triangles are heaven and earth. The red and white paint Horse is decorated in celebratory regalia to signify that he was the first to return from the raid as a Man (Warrior) that gained honor among his people.
