In this handsome bronze, an axe-wielding Native American woman carries one of her young children while another crouches beside her. At her feet lies a dead animal, probably a bear cub, and she scans the path ahead for further danger. Remarkably, this 19th-century sculpture reflects few of the cultural stereotypes common at the time.
