    Crow Indian CURLEY
    1912 Sawyer Bronze Galvano

    1912 Bronze Galvano, Edward Warren Sawyer, CURLEY, Crow Tribe, Crow Agency, Montana, Medallic Art Company. Uniface. 125 mm. The famous Crow scout for Custer, his name appears as Curley or Curly in various sources. He is perhaps the best remembered of Sawyer's Indians today. The rich mahogany surfaces exhibit olive toning on the high points. This is the only example that we know of outside of museums. One other large size and five small size examples are known.

    Curley was born about 1856 and died in 1923. He was buried at the Big Horn National Cemetery. He was a scout for Custer's battalion of the Seventh Cavalry who witnessed the battle at Little Big Horn. He was known to be the sole survivor of Custer's troops.
