Highly detailed mixed media/bronze statue by Christopher Pardell. Issued in October 1990, sold out by the end of that year. Artist Proof limited to 950 pieces.

The sculpture depicts a bust of Chief Red Cloud holding a hook -shaped staff with feather and wearing a feathered headdress. Red Cloud (Makh-pia-sha), an Oglala Sioux, lived 1822-1809. The sculpture incorporates Legends unique use of bronze, pewter, and mixed media with added gold, silver, red, and blue coloring. At the base of the sculpture itself can be seen the artist’s name and “AP/950”. A small plaque attached to the lower portion of the back of the base gives the name of the piece and the collection that it is part of (The Legacies of the West Premier Edition by Legends).

Stands 15” high including the base; marble base measures 6 ½” tall, 3 ¾” wide and 3 ¾” deep. It is quite heavy, weighing just over 19 lbs.

Christopher Pardell began sculpting at the tender age of four, and by his teenage years, Pardell had come to the realization that sculpting was to become his life's work. Influenced by the work of renowned sculptors Russell, Remington and Rodin, Pardell wanted to pursue his passion for realism. His formal education was laid aside in favor of an apprentice moldmaker position with a commercial statuary company, and it was there that he received what he considers to be his "real education in art." As an apprentice to the Italian master artisans who ran the statuary, Christopher rapidly learned the skills that would enable him to excel as an artist and earn the stature that has come with his success. Never sketching his designs on paper, Christopher composes all of his work in three dimensions, in a maquette. This unique approach explains the unparalleled beauty and detail that are the trademarks of his work. Christopher’s exceptional style and special talent have served to impress even the most discriminating collector. Currently, his artwork can be found in public and private collections throughout the world.  [ld] [ph:m]
