Chief Weasel Head / Alexander Phimister Proctor

Gallery Label

Proctor made studies for this work on a hunting trip to Montana Territory in 1895. This work was registered at Gorham the same day as Aims Back (0826.77, 0826.78), January 28, 1914, and assigned the next code in the sequence—QUE. Like Aims Back, this bronze was also apparently a marketplace flop, and only two are known to exist.

From the exhibition:Frontier to Foundry: the Making of Small Bronze Sculpture in the Gilcrease Collection, December 2014 - March 2015.
