Process Note: To explain Tonto's head-dress:
looks unrecognizable. Hewas actually inspired to update Tonto's look after seeing a painting by artist . "I looked at the face of this warrior and thought: That's it," Depp recalls. "The stripes down the face and across the eyes . . . it seemed to me like you could almost see the separate sections of an individual, if you know what I mean."Depp says the lines of paint on the face represent the cross-section of a man's emotional life.
"There's this very wise quarter, a very tortured and hurt section, an angry and rageful section, and a very understanding and unique side. That makeup inspired me."
Sattler's painting also inspired Tonto's headdress. "It just so happened Sattler had painted a bird flying directly behind the warrior's head. It looked to me like it was sitting on top, "I thought: Tonto's got a bird on his head. It's his spirit guide in a way. It's dead to others, but it's not dead to him. It's very much alive."
