Between 1866 and 1872, Edmonia Lewis carved a number of cabinet-sized busts of Hiawatha and his ill-fated lover Minnehaha, inspired by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s The Song of Hiawatha. While Hiawatha was a real leader of the Iroquois Confederacy, the character in the poem is a fictive figure inspired by diverse Native American traditions, whose personification contributed to the idea of the “noble savage” as expressed in nineteenth-century literature. Wadsworth’s Hiawatha had Ojibwe (or Chippewa) roots, the same indigenous group from which Lewis descended. Her carving method draws reflects her time spent working in Rome, where she honed her neoclassical style, while simultaneously expressing her Native American and African-American heritage through her subject matter.
This work is on view now in "Highlights and Recent Acquisitions from the American and European Collections". Edmonia Lewis, Bust of Hiawatha, 1868. Marble on original socle, 12 ½ x 7 ½ x 4 in. diameter at base. Museum purchase, Otis Family Acquisition Trust, M.2018.5.

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with marble tiles. They look so gorgeous when they done but they involve a lot of labour. You can’t slot them into a drying rack on your desk so it’s up and down to the table you placing them on. Packaging them up is another job in itself. Nibs are absolutely trashed after a batch. Cleaning the grit off the back. Let’s not even talk about that.
But we all know that beautiful things come at a cost right! Mmmm much like life !

The bathroom I grew up with had terracotta tiles, an aqua tub, and a window that opened into the rumpus room (thanks to a dodgy 70s renovation). It was also where we stored our freezer so it was super convenient to sneak an ice cream in the shower.
So glad bathrooms have come such a long way since then!
