AMERICAN HORSE

33" H x 13.5"  W x 11" D
Edition of 20

SOLD

American Horse was a prominent Oglala Sioux chief who was married to Red Cloud’s daughter.  Part of my inspiration for this sculpture was his famous top hat which at the time was the ultimate symbol of white man power.  He received this as a delegate during a trip to Washington and it was later decorated by his wife using eagle feathers, a cavalry helmet eagle plate and an American flag.  This hat is on display at the Smithsonian Museum of the Indian in Washington DC.
