This head was done using a photograph of Geronimo, taken by Adolph Muhr and dated 1913. The problem with that is Geronimo died on February 17, 1909, so, I used the 1907 date to identify the fact that Geronimo was near the end of his life at the time and showing the effects of a long, hard, battle-filled existence. His hair , though thinning, is still thick for a man in his late seventies, his cheekbones are pronounced and his cheeks hollow. He had a notable wart on his right cheek and an unexplained indentation on his right temple, possibly the remnant of a significant wound earlier in life. This is the visage of a fierce and proud old warrior.
