Mr. Delegate

20” H x 9” W x 9” D

Bronze, Edition of 35

SOLD

A tactic that the US Government used in hopes of placating the Indian Nations was to bring successive groups of their Chiefs to Washington to impress them with the strength and wealth of the US Government.  Although these diplomatic trips were of little help to either side, they became fairly common and some of the Indian delegates enjoyed bringing home with them mementos that represented culture in Washington DC.  My sculpture depicts one of these delegates wearing his souvenir, the ultimate symbol of white man’s Washington culture.
