"In the late 1800's Taos was a popular place for commerce and a lot of white settlers and artists moved there. In the summer on the Taos plaza, Pueblo men were usually bare chested as they had been for centuries. At some point they say, the white ladies (or men? maybe...) were uncomfortable about it and asked if they could start covering themselves. And so the story goes that the JC Penney store located on the plaza provided these white sheets to cover themselves with. I'm sure it wasn't that simple but this is how the story is told by the Pueblos up in Taos. So because the meaning of all this is way more profound than it seems, I thought it would be a strong image to have Lyle on a horse caught in the action of covering himself and seeing the sun shining through. His face is of defiance and pride, determination and stoicism. And no matter what happens in the future, the Taos Pueblos were there before and will be there after. Covered or Uncovered. With all my love and respect."
