This is the last sculpture in the edition.

"He wears a buckskin shirt from the mid-1800s, with elaborate beadwork and silver conchos. Usually only wealthy men owned this type of shirt. His lance is made of a sotol stalk, slotted at the end to receive an iron blade. A sleeve of rawhide (probably a section of cow's tail) was slid down over the blade, and as it dried, it held the blade snugly in place.

He wears a cloth breech-clout, buckskin moccasins, and beaded choker necklaces. 

His beaded necklace is mad from glass beads strung on a buckskin thong with a large silver concho and tweezers attached (undoubtedly acquired from Navajo silversmiths). The Apache used tweezers to pluck facial hair.

The Western Apache are a very proud people. I feel that Apache Sentinel captures this feeling." -Susan Kliewer
