70 mm medal, 93 mm diameter with frame. Obverse inscribed SUNKA-HANSKA-OGLALA-SIOUX around. Below left, MANDERSON/SO.DAKOTA/1912. To right, SAWYER. Housed in old wooden custom circular frame. Edward Warren sawyer was a prominent sculptor and medalist born in Chicago March 17, 1876. He moved to Paris in 1912 and died in Toulon, France July 16, 1932. He is noted for preparing more than forty American Indian "bas-reliefs" from 13 Indian tribes. This example is one of a number of reliefs produced by the Medallic Art Company in galvano form for the artist. Sawyer exhibited five of these reliefs at the National Academy of Design, 1907, and nine at the International Exhibition of Contemporary Medals at the American Numismatic Society, 1910. One of his Sioux Indian Portraits was exhibited at F.I.D.E.M. Stockholm AF6 {1955} but the exhibit catalog did not specify which of the three Sioux portraits was shown. In 1931, he was awarded the J. Sanford Saltus Medal for Medallic Art by the ANS. (About Uncirculated)
