Courage To Lead

Courage To Lead
By Denny Haskew
Chest thrust forward and exposed. Bois d' Arc bows stringed with sinew from the Buffalo, pulled at full draw, holding the straightest cedar shaft arrows, tipped with the sharp flint of the Alibates Quarry. At the release the shafts will try to touch the Sun . The arrows that were launched will disappear in the blinding light. Aimed skyward to fall back to earth from where they came, suddenly a choice must be made. When the arrows comes back in view, run or stay. Lead or Follow!
There was no story that I found for the inspiration of this sculpture! The words above are my own interpretation of what I saw!
