General Note

  • The King, wearing elaborate shell and stone jewelry, has extensive tattooed patterns all over his body. There were created by rubbing charcoal in small incisions made in the skin. The King also wears a bone and feather headdress, a sash woven of Spanish moss and copper ear spools traded from the Great Lakes area. The life-size figure of cast bronze was designed and created by the artist team of Bradley Cooley and Bradley Cooley Jr. from Lamont, Florida.
  • "American Royalty" is the third sculptural group installed in the Indian Heritage Tableau at the R.A. Gray Building that honors Florida Native Americans. It was taken from a drawing done by sixteenth century artist Jacques Le Moyne during his travels up through what is now Florida to the Carolinas. The group of indigenous peoples of the European Contact Era (mid-16th century) shows a King, Queen and servant. The work was funded by corporate sponsor Robert Floyd and artists Bradley Cooley and Bradley Cooley Jr. It was dedicated on March 15, 2007.
