Andy Warhol created Indian Head Nickel 385 in 1986 for his Cowboys and Indians portfolio. Warhol was fascinated by celebrity myths and the ways in which stories are represented by the media. This allure led Warhol to create his Cowboys and Indians portfolio as a commentary about the myth of the American West. He used recognizable images like this one of Indian Head Nickel that are representative the popular yet ahistorical version of Native American culture. Warhol removed this native imagery from its original context and interspersed it with images of romanticized American heroes. Indian Head Nickel is an example of Warhol’s fascination with the way media and society interpret histories and misrepresent the history of the American west. This particular print is a unique color combination.
