"The Pawnee" James Bama Limited Edition Giclee Canvas. James Bama has derived a great deal of joy from the friendships he has developed with many of the Native American subjects of his portraits. Years ago, he discovered that on a personal level, they are often very different from the confrontational image they often project. For example, Wes Studi, a full-blooded Cherokee, established an impressive screen-acting career with his intense portrayals of a Pawnee war-party leader in "Dances with Wolves" and as the vengeful Magua in "The Last of the Mohicans, " yet Bama found him genial and obliging. During their visits to the Bama home, Studi and his children often spent happy hours playing basketball with the artist and his son.
The cultural gap was bridged as two fathers enjoyed time with their children. All Limited Edition prints are signed and numbered (S/N) by the artist. Limited Edition prints are restricted to a certain number. For example, if 400 prints are made from an original painting, once theyre gone, thats it.
There is no limit to the number of open edition prints of a particular painting. Thats why Limited Edition prints are more expensive and more valuable to collectors than "open" edition. Rare objects are more valuable. The term "giclee" denotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper.

The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.All Limited Edition artwork is subject to availability at time of order.
