Stone Mirrors: The Sculpture and Silence of Edmonia Lewis

Jeannine Atkins

2017

A sculptor of historical figures starts with givens but creates her own vision. Edmonia Lewis was just such a sculptor, but she never spoke or wrote much about her past, and the stories that have come down through time are often vague or contradictory. Some facts are known: Edmonia was the daughter of an Ojibwe woman who died when she was young.
