Drawing; two Native North American warriors standing on the ground fighting with bows and arrows. A yellow colour horse with black reins, bushy tail and a long thistle-like ornament hanging from his mouth is standing behind them. The warrior closest to the horse has a red painted face, braids wrapped in red cloth; wearing a black shirt (military jacket?) with flap, and red leggins with red loin-cloth hanging from his waist. He is pointing his arrow at the other warrior, a Pawnee, who is badly wounded and has an arrow in his belly. He has a red forehead, long hair, a round ornament hanging from his right ear and a narrow black waist band. He has a black animal skin quiver on his left shoulder.
