Pardons to the sculptress, but Dancing With a Prickly Pear was the first thing that came to mind as I walked up to this statue. That bronc and rider have got themselves in one heck of a fix!
Tribute to Range Riders
Standing at the Capitol entrance is an intricately detailed bronze by Constance Whitney Warren. A sculptress of Paris,France and New York. A Tribute To The Romantic Riders of the Range. Dedicated in 1930.
1st Sculpture installed on Capitol grounds.
Spent some time studying this bronze and have to say the sculptress had a great eye for detail. A fitting tribute to all the men who drove Longhorns up the trails to the rail heads in Kansas from Texas and through Oklahoma!
