About Mystic Warriors and Tom Lucas, the Artist:
The size of the print is 18 x 24 framed. The original Mystic Warriors is a symbolic painting. Lucas has the war bonnet sitting over the Buffalo with a geometric design in the background which is called the Black-war bonnet design. Lucas shows the connection between the red-man and the buffalo. The native people depended on the buffalo for every part of their lives, i.e. food clothing shelter, tools… They used every part of the buffalo.
"It is said that art is a statement of a current time and place, my art takes me to a past time and place, one filled with artifacts and history. Telling stories with my oils is an emotional journey that is a direct reflection of my life experiences. My desire to be a Western Artist stems from my lifestyle as a cowboy, mountain man and outdoorsman. I have amassed a collection of Native American and cowboy artifacts and have acquired an unmatched working knowledge of the actual methods of ancestral tool making. These items and their history are subjects in my still life paintings and the compositions are arranged so as if I am telling a story," Lucas said
