Transferring the Bear Knife

by Z.S. Liang

“Among the Blackfoot people of old,” says artist Z. S. Liang, “the power of the Bear Knife was legendary. It was believed to be so powerful that it could immobilize an enemy with fear at the sight of a warrior holding it! The warrior entrusted with the knife had to prove himself worthy of it, even during the ceremonial transfer.” American Museum of Natural History anthropologist Clark Wissler describes the object as “. . . a large dagger-like knife, to the handle of which was attached the jaws of a bear . . . which the recipient must catch when violently thrown at him . . .”. As a rule, the ‘keeper’ could not use any other weapon when going into battle. During the winter months the sacred knife would sleep wrapped securely in its bundle. The unwrapping ceremony was given with the coming of spring, coinciding with the time when bears emerged from hibernation. The original painting was unveiled at the 2008 Masters of the American West Exhibition and Sale, where it cemented Liang’s reputation as the up-and-comer in Western art.

Solitary Hunter

by Z.S. Liang

“I have profound respect for this Woodland Indian hunter,” says Z. S. Liang.“ This Indian man’s solitude and ability survive on his own in a wild environment intrigues me as an artist. The hunter is a son of Mother Nature. Everything he uses, from the birch-bark canoe to his weapons and garment, has been created from natural materials. Long ago, raw copper nuggets were battered into thin pieces of metal to make jewelry like that shown in this hunter’s earrings.”

Since its premiere at the 2006 Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale,
Solitary Hunter has been the single most-requested Liang image at the Greenwich Workshop. We have no greater pleasure than to bring you art that is not only award-winning but beloved by collectors.
