A political and ceremonial visit of four Native Americans to England in 1710 is commemorated here. The "kings" (really elected sachems, or civil chiefs, of the Iroquois confederacy) sailed with three colonial leaders to convince the British that military support was needed if Britain wanted to secure colonial expansion. Native Americans were such novel curiosities in Europe that their likenesses were taken by Bernard Lens, Sr. and Jr. The younger Lens painted miniature portraits of the four, from life, on ivory. His father used the miniatures as models for his engraving, from which prints were produced. The many impressions made from the Lens's mezzotints kept the Native Americans' fame alive in Europe and after their return to America.
