November 19, 2016 -- The Cattle Drive
This just one part of a large and historically correct display (much larger than this single image shows) depicting a 19th Century cattle drive headed across the Waco Suspension Bridge http://smu.gs/2evBoPK) on its way up the Chisholm Trail. This lone cowpoke is at the head of the herd (in this image) as it enters the bridge in addition to a black drover and a Mexican vaquero in other parts of the large display of bronze sculptures – to be historically correct.
This lone cowpoke is perfect in every small detail, as can be seen by the equipment he carries on his horse’s back: a canteen, saddle bags, bed roll, a rifle ... each object carefully defined by the sculptor. He is appropriately dressed in chaps and wide-brimmed hat common with those cowboys who drove cattle along the Chisholm Trail.
The Sculptor for this display (Robert Summers) is a nationally known sculptor of Monuments of epic dimensions and has created prominent bronze works displayed in places such as the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame Museum, the Dallas Pioneer Park, The Loews Anatole Hotel, Fair Park, Los Angeles International Airport, and Baccus Plaza in Plano Texas.
