    Pawnee Indian SAH-COOH-RU-TU-REE-HOO
    1912 Sawyer Bronze Galvano

    1912 Bronze Galvano, Edward Warren Sawyer, SAH-COOH-RU-TU-REE-HOO, Pawnee Tribe, Pawnee, Oklahoma, Medallic Art Company. Uniface. 125 mm. Reddish steel-brown surfaces exhibit microscopic corrosion. This example and one other large size galvano are known, along with five small size examples, and all others are held in museum collections.

    Sah-Cooh-Ru-Tu-Ree-Hoo, also known as Big Sun or Seeing Eagle, was married to Pee-Ru-Ths, whose image was also sculpted by Sawyer. A 1903 Census of Pawnee Indians appears online at genealogytrails.com, and notes that Seeing Eagle was born about 1835. He was married to Maggie Peerootz who was born about 1864, and he had a stepson, Edgar Peetwotz, who was born about 1892.
