Bust of a Native American Indian in bronze done by Frederic Remington named “The Savage,” an artist famous for his depictions of the Old West. The bust has a stylized touch, displaying high cheek bones, a proud hooked nose, and long draping hair for an altogether striking look.
About the Artist:
Born in Canton, New York in 1861, Frederic Remington became an American sculptor and illustrator that specialized in depictions of Native Americans and the culture surrounding the old west. He attended school at Yale University for art, the only male student of his freshmen class. He traveled to Montana to purchase a cattle farm and then a mine operation, and after realizing that he couldn’t afford either fell in love with the authentic west, drawing the people he would see on his travels.

Owl by Nicodemus Pottery has a matte milky white finish with bits of brick red pottery peeking through. Round yellow eyes, a black beak, and black talons complete this design.
About the Artist: Chester Nicodemus (1901-1990) was a Columbus, Ohio potter, sculptor, and teacher known for his small clay birds, as well as other wildlife, teapots and pitchers. His pieces are recognizable as being produced with variously colored translucent glazes, which enhanced the redness of the high iron content of Ohio clay to create a russet brown undertone.
Nicodemus earned a degree from Cleveland Art School and then went on to teach at Dayton Art School and Wittenberg college. In 1932, he became dean at the Columbus College of Art and Design and later taught at Ohio State University and served as president of the Columbus Art League. All of Nicodemus' molds and glazes were destroyed upon his death at his request.
