    AT-ZI-DI
    Probably Navajo
    (1904) Sawyer Bronze Galvano

    (1904) Bronze Galvano, Edward Warren Sawyer, AT-ZI-DI, Uncertain Tribe, Medallic Art Company. Uniface. 125 mm. Circa 1904 with incuse letters and illegible lettering at the lower right. The style of this sculpture, with incuse lettering, closely matches that of Yuma Indian Ne-I-So-Meh. The appearance of the individual, with a headband and hair in a bun at the back of the head, closely matches later Navajo natives in the Sawyer series. We know of only two examples of this galvano, both large diameter pieces. The other example is in the collection of the Whitney Western Art Museum in Cody, Wyoming.
    From Sawyer's Native American Portrait Galvanos.
