"The Sacred War Pipe" by Z. S. Liang




The Sacred War Pipe
by Z.S. Liang


To prepare for action against a hostile tribe, a Crow war chief invokes the power of the Seven Stars (the Big Dipper), Old Women’s Grandchild (a mythic warrior) and all the other heavenly, supernatural ones from Crow legend. He is seeking their help and favor through the venerative smoke of his war pipe. The scared smoke will carry his prayers heavenward.

Miniature art is an important part of any collection and a SmallWork™ is a simple way to either start or add to your collection. Such works are often a collector’s first purchase for the obvious reason, they are less expensive. As single works of art, they can be that final elegant touch in fine décor.  At the other end of the spectrum, a wall of miniatures makes for an impressive display of a collector’s unique range of style and interest.

Each SmallWork is created with the same precision as all Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Editions, signed by the artist and numbered as a collectible limited edition.

About Z.S. Liang

Z.S. Liang was born in China and raised in a family of artists. He studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangzhou. Liang furthered his art study in the United States in 1982.He earned his BFA in painting at Massachusetts College of Arts in 1986 and his MFA in Painting at Boston University in 1989. 

Liang received his great inspiration in this country while studying and painting the Wampanoag Indian culture at the outdoor Museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This newfound interest fired his imagination, and he began to focus his painting primarily on Native American Indian cultures and their traditional ways of life. During the ensuring years of field research, he has made many connections and friends among Native tribes from the East coast to the Rocky Mountains. Liang’s obvious passion for the Indians as a people, coupled with his emphasis on historical accuracy, adds strength and truth to his portrayals. 

Among the many awards Liang has received are: the David P. Usher Patrons’ Choice Award, Master of the American West, 2009; the President’s Award for Excellence, Oil Painters of America, 2005; Best of Show Award and People’s Choice Award, the American Society of Portrait Artists, 1998; the Arthur Ross Award for Painting, Classical America, New York, 1992; and the Lila Acheson Award for Painting, the Society of American Illustrators, 1986. Liang’s works are in the permanent collections of Autry National Center, West Point Museum of United States Military Academy and Harvard University.

Liang has been invited to participate the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale in Autry National Center every year since 2005. His works have been featured in Art of the West, South West Art, Western Art Collectors, Artists and International Artists Magazines.
