Bust of a Native American Indian in bronze after 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.
