    ISH-KI-LA-CAI
    Probably Navajo
    (1904) Sawyer Bronze Galvano

    (1904) Bronze Galvano, Edward Warren Sawyer, ISH-KI-LA-CAI, Uncertain Tribe, Uncertain Location, Medallic Art Company. Uniface. 125 mm. Pleasing, semi-glossy olive-brown surfaces. Probably circa 1904, as the last two, with incuse lettering that differs from his other work. The lettering behind the Indian's shoulder is illegible. The hair style and bandana around the Indian's head suggest that AT-ZI-DI in the previous lot, and ISH-KI-LA-CAI in this lot are closely related and likely from the same tribe. 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.
