    (1904) Navajo Indian QUINLICHINI-NEZ
    Undated Sawyer Bronze Galvano

    (1904) Bronze Galvano, Edward Warren Sawyer, QUINLICHINI-NEZ, Navajo Tribe, Ganado, Arizona, Medallic Art Company. Uniface. 125 mm. Circa 1904 from Sawyer's first trip to Indian reservations. His 1904 trip was exclusively to the Navajo reservation at Ganado, Arizona. Pleasing mahogany and steel-brown with glossy surfaces. Just two examples of this medallion are known, and both are large diameter pieces. The other example is in the collection of the Whitney Western Art Museum in Cody, Wyoming.

    The U.S. Indian Census Rolls dated 1915 for Navajos living in the Cornfields, Ganado, and Wide Ruins Districts include the family of 78-year-old Kinlacheney Nez who had one wife, three daughters, and two sons. He would have been 67 years old in 1904 when this relief was created. The connection is clearly plausible.
    From Sawyer's Native American Portrait Galvanos.
