Svenska Tribunen -- January 10, 1894Dallin's Bronze Statue to Lincoln Park.
A bronze statue of an Indian on a horse, made by the prominent Swedish artist, A.E.Dallin, which was exhibited at the World's Fair last year, has been purchased by Judge Lambert Tree for $10,000 and donated by him to be erected at Lincoln Park. The motif of the statue is purely American. It shows an Indian, riding on his horse, holding a staff with an attached feather, which is a token, among the Indians, that the horseman is coming for a peaceful purpose.
The artist has called his work "A Peace Token." The statue was at the Paris Exhibition in 1890, where it was highly recommended. It was rewarded with a medal and diploma at the World's Fair in Chicago, 1893.
