Larry P. Big Bow

Artist Larry Big Bow was the son of Kiowa artist Woody Big Bow. The painting on paper is executed in the traditional Kiowa style and depicts a flute player. Flutes were used in ceremonies, for meditation and for courtship.

Larry had at least one exhibition with his father, as part of a festival celebrating Oklahoma’s Semi-Centennial in 1957 at the Main Library in Oklahoma City. This piece is on permanent loan from the Oklahoma Historical Society.
