apache "crown/mountain spirit/fire?? dancer"
1967,edit. of 129,8" tall bronze -- sculpt finish seems crude compared to other/later works. image on left foot, pivoting right- left blade contacts @ nose and lower third of crown, while right heel of sword contacts raised right knee and tip joins left elbow. interestingly, only three points on vertical and horiz. arms of the crown, rather than typical four, on each 'arm' of crown. stamped, nambe mills, 5 of 129. base shape and size similar to half egg cut on long axis. form and movement vividly apparent, typ. a.h.. thank you, mdt

To bad the pulic was so misled on the difference between lifetime castings and those cast after the artists death.
Allan, was the greatest man/artist I ever knew!Karl Albert
I have know alot of great men in my 94 years, but Allan was in a place of his own. I am glad to have know him. He deserves to go down in history as the "Greatest Artist ever to have lived"

Allan Houser was my uncle. He was the greatest artist I have ever known. He was also a man with so much kindness and warmth. His wife, my aunt is also equally the best and kindest person. He left such a legacy behind for all of us to view. How lucky we are to have touched paths!
