Sculpture and Architectural Indians

Up in Seattle, I had to stop and admire this enormous architectural ceramic sculpture in the convention center. It's easily 8 feet tall, so that's 3 times life sized? 4 ?

Keep in mind this was only a small part of the building's facade, demolished in the 1970's. Wish it still existed.....

The tag identifies it as a "Native American Chief" by Victor Schneider. c 1910. It says that it was part of the White, Henry and Stuart buildings in downtown Seattle and that Schneider was influenced by the work of Edward Curtis.
