Indian Demise Bookends

28 Feb

This pair of Indian bookends tells a story.  The near-naked, muscular warrior is in a pose of fierce resistance, but his club and his quiver of arrows are on the ground, useless.  His woman  is fleeing with their infant child.  We can imagine they are under attack from white men.

Indian Demise, Gray Metal, Height 6.25 inches, Weight 5.5 pounds per pair, Unmarked, Very detailed casting.

The subject matter is very familiar.  Indians and european settlers destroy each other in song and story,  but these are the most graphic bookends that illustrate the conflict.
