Description: The original painting was created sometime between 1953/1963. The painting depicts a muscular Indian man carrying a large bundle and climbing up a steep mountain. It is meant to depict the ever steep climb to keep Native sovereignty in tact. At the bottom of the painting, Louis has written this tome:
"Comfort comes as a friend and departs as the Master." The ancient Red Indian Culture of the Human exercised the Red man o'yore physically, mentally and morally, resulting in complete Self-Mastery, hence, the above depiction of comfort disdain handed down to this very day.
