"Treaty of New York" A treaty between the Creek Nation and George Washington over tribal lands in Georgia and Alabama. 1790. lead by Alexander McGillivray and Henry Knox. In my work I like to slice other components into the piece. So I've given George Washington indigenous tribal wear and his hands are a replicate of Issac Newtons hands that you can find on the back of a one pound note. In them is a book with text taken from a common prayer book.

Thank you.
