Art of Bronze is proud to offer “The Protest” (8.75” H.) bronze statue after Cyrus Dallin.  The Native man on horseback is wearing a feathered war bonnet, an object of great significance for the peoples of the Plains tribes.  The Native American has long braided hairs, one hanging down his chest and one flowing over his shoulder.  He is wearing a loin cloth, moccasins and has a beaded necklace.  His right arm outstretched in front of him with his fist clenched in defiance.  According to Rell G. Francis, it depicts “a Sioux chief vigorously protesting the confiscation of his lands and buffalo by the white man.”

Cyrus Edwin Dallin (1861- 1944) was an American sculptor who specialized in depicting Native Americans.  He created more than 260 works including many monumental works of art placed throughout the country.  In 1940, he did the equestrian statue of Paul Rever placed in front of the Old North Church in Boston.  His four prominent sculptures of indigenous people are A Signal of Pece (1890), The Medicine Man (1899), The Protest of the Sioux (1904) and Appeal to the Great Spirit (1908.)

In 1904, a monumental version was exhibited at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, held in St. Louis, Missouri.  It won a gold medal.  Unfortunately, unlike the other statues in the series, The Protest was never cast into bronze.

Each bronze sculpture is cast in the ‘lost wax’ method and hand finished to capture excellent texture and detail throughout the entire sculpture.  Custom fit marble bases are attached to each sculpture.  A bronze plaque with etched lettering featuring the title of the sculpture and Remington’s name is available to attach to the front or backside of the marble base.
