Sometimes titled Banished From His Land, this Glenna Goodacre bronze was originally sculpted in 1977. From the front, the Native American subject looks peaceful and serene, as if his head is down in silent prayer, but the back side shows his hands are bound, which alters the entire mood of the piece. “[Native Americans] were left helpless to lead any kind of life as they knew it…,” Goodacre wrote about the piece in 2009. Banished would later inform Goodacre’s He Is, They Are, a 10-foot-tall monument of the same subject from 1991.
