The Uktena 'The Great Serpent' in from many Native American Myths. It had a flashing jewel within it's head, it was horned (it can also apear to have dear antlers. Uktena had seven bands of color around it's neck. The Great Serpent could also be portrayed with wings. This idea for this portrait came from reading a book my daughter brought home Native American Myths and Ledgends by Colin F. Taylor Ph.D. I might read some more and come up with a few more new pics. Hope everyone likes this one.
