Among the Forest Spirits depicts a Crow man on horseback in an aspen forest on the Crow ancestral homelands (what is now Wyoming and Montana). The idea behind this piece was a sense that the man is not alone in the forest--he may appear to be, but there may be animals, foes, or forest spirits nearby. The man is wearing green blanket leggings and sits atop a trade blanket. He has attached a medicine bundle to his horse, which would contain items of great personal significance. The horse has spots on his rump, meant to represent hail and the notion of “raining hail” upon one’s enemies.
