Gift of A. Phimister Proctor Museum with special thanks to Sandy and Sally Church
Proctor portrayed his subject in a heroic pose, mounted on horseback as military leaders have traditionally been depicted. To research Indian subjects the artist traveled to the Blackfeet reservation in Montana. Although Weasel Head, a Blackfeet, served as the final model for this figure, the sculpture is not a specific portrait. Proctor created an idealized image of the Indian as a proud and noble warrior.
