    Navajo Indian EST-ZAN-LOPA
    1904 Sawyer Bronze Galvano

    1904 Bronze Galvano, Edward Warren Sawyer, EST-ZAN-LOPA, Navajo Tribe, Ganado, Arizona, Medallic Art Company. Uniface. 125 mm. Glossy chocolate-brown surfaces display traces of mahogany on the devices. Two large medallions are known, along with six small size (70 mm.) examples. This example and one other are the only galvanos known outside of museums. Our census has accounted for 216 medallions in total for all of the varieties. In his 1913 American Journal of Numismatics article titled "My Work Among the Indians," Sawyer noted that Est-Zan-Lopa was "a little girl basket weaver."
    From Sawyer's Native American Portrait Galvanos.
