The period of the Indian Wars that gripped the North American continent almost since the ﬁrst white man set foot on it ﬁnally ended in 1890 at the Battle of Wounded knee.
In this scene, the cavalry horse carries basically 1874 tack, so this could have been a scene behind the scene from the period of 1874 to 1877. When sculpting the Indian pony, the artist "used his license", so to speak. To help balance the composition, Thomas used their unique style of saddle; however, it was seldom used in battle as it impeded the expert horseman. The war shield would have been on the warrior not draped over the saddle.
The artist thought it was important to show the difference between both warriors' tack and symbolism. Piece is listed at Jump the Gun price. Normal pricing, listed below, will begin Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 7pm MDT.
