ZS Liang War Dance Native American Indian Western Art Canvas
War Dance
by Z.S. Liang

This is one of Z.S. Liang’s most dynamic visions of Native American life. The passion and might of these warriors is palatable as they twist and whirl around the yellow bonfire flames during this pre-raid ritual.

“The war dance of the Northeast Indian tribes was held before the raid,” relates Liang. “Large fires were lit in the center of the village. The fiercely painted warriors gathered around the fire. The chief would give a speech to convince his people that the forthcoming strike was with the approval and guidance of the Great Spirit. The drum started in a slow pulse rated beat. The excitement heated up as the beat got faster, accompanied by rattling and singing. The war leader took his club and stamped the ground as if to shake the universe then began to dance and sing. Warriors started to rise and join the war dance. As each joined in, they became a volunteer for the raid. The war party was formed strictly by volunteers. War dances were usually held at night.”

Our MasterWork™Fine Art Giclèe Canvas War Dance is a visual tour de force. At 46" x 31" its dominant presence will energize any space. Available in an edition of only 20, it will become a collectible classic. Just as impressive, but in a size for rooms with slightly less space is the 35-piece 33" x 23" Fine Art Gilcee Canvas edition.

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.
