Yuma Indian NE-I-SO-MEH
Undated Bronze Galvano, Edward Warren Sawyer, NE-I-SO-MEH, Yuma
Tribe, Yuma, Arizona, Medallic Art Company. Uniface. 125 mm.
Intermingled mahogany and steel surfaces. Probably circa 1904, from
Sawyer's first visit to Arizona. The lettering is incuse and the
style is completely different from the majority of his work,
suggesting this was one of his earliest works. A second version of
this galvano exists with well-formed, raised letters, signed
"Sawyer, Yuma, 1904."
(1904) Sawyer Bronze Galvano
The Yuma Indian Reservation is located in California, on the border with Arizona and near the Mexican border. The reservation was established in 1884, just two decades before Sawyer made his first trip to the American west. After visiting the Yuma reservation, he traveled to Ganado, Arizona. Ne-I-So-Meh was the first Indian that Sawyer sculpted.
From Sawyer's Native American Portrait Galvanos.
