The inspiration for this Mountain Man Statue is the famous Remington Mountain Man. Of course the original costs many thousand dollars and is larger. Our 2nd image shows the original. Our statue has been electroplated with bronze.
The Mountain Man depicts a dramatic moment in the daily life of a frontier trapper, in which he and his mount work together to descend a precarious slope. The earliest "Mountain Man" statuettes are sharply delineated with a rich variety of textures, from the fringed buckskin garment to the animal’s hairy coat to the rocklike base. The Metropolitan Museum purchased this statuette—and three others—from Remington in 1907.
Do you know that Frederick Remington is a famous sculptor who worked a lot with bronze? He enjoyed creating sculptures with Western themes. Remington died in 1907. He lived in Ridgefield CT (and I lived in Ridgefield too! - but not in 1907).
A rearing horse with a cowboy on its back is the theme of this horse statue. The horse is standing only on its hind legs trying to throw the cowboy from its back. The cowboy is gripping the reins tightly in his left hand and whipping the back side of the horse with his right. The cowboy's hat is pulled tightly over his forehead and ears to stop it from flying off. With the look of the muscles on this fantastic horse it's very hard to decide who will win this battle. Marvel at the details of this fantastic horse statue. You can see every intracacy from the moustache on the man's face to the flaring of the horse's nostrils.
You can personalize the black base with a plaque. We would recommend a black plaque with old letters. Statue has a resin core and has been electroplated with bronze. A Western sculpture for sure!
Saddle bronc riding is rodeo's classic event, both a complement and contrast to the wilder spectacles of bareback riding and bull riding. This event requires strength to be sure, but the event also demands style, grace and precise timing.
You have a choice of two sizes of this cowboy statue. This is the smaller 6 inch size. The larger size is about twice as large. PJY116.
This horse statue depicts a Native American riding a horse down a steep slope of rock. The Native American has a tight grip on the back of the saddle as well as the reins, and is gripping tightly with his knees as well. Notice how long the reins are! if you don't give the horse enough head you will certainly be thrown off.
This horse sculpture has many fine details to admire. The intricacies of the saddle, The weapon on the riders back, and you can even see a coil of rope strapped to the side of the horse. This is a very difficult descent down the mounain and you can tell that by the look of serious concentration on the rider's face.
A beautiful tribute to the Native American rider and horse.
Such an emotional statue ... and sadly true.
End of Trail horse statue depicts a very tired Indian warrior on a very tired horse. You can only assume the battle is over by looking at this horse sculpture. The warrior sitting atop the horse's back is slumped over with his head and shoulders arched downwards. The warrior is still holding his spear, and there is a long knife sheathed in a scabbard on his left hip. The horse is slumped forward as well with its tail between its legs. This horse sculpture looks like rider and horse after an epic battle.
In the 15th Century there were over 4 million Native Americans. By 1900 the number had dwindled to 237,000. However, diseases killed more than wars.
This horse sculpture depicts a bucking horse with a cowboy on its back. The horse is standing on its two front legs trying to buck the cowboy off its back. The cowboy is holding the reins with his left hand and has his right hand behind him helping to balance him on the horses back. This horse statue is very detailed. Look at the intracacies of the saddle, stirrups, from the mane to the tail every last detail is intricate. You can even see the button on the chaps the cowboy is wearing.
Even though the famous bronze sculptor, Frederic Remington, died in 1907 - his sculptures sell for high prices today. His copyright has expired so reproductions are legal. The Outlaw is one of Frederic Remingtons popular bucking horse bronze sculptures. This piece has great movement and detail.
The Outlaw has the horse and rider balancing on one front leg as suspended. The horse's rump is straight up in the air and the cowboy leans back, balancing himself in the saddle as he keeps his seat. The Outlaw reflects the artist's obsessive attention to detail and fervent passion for the American cowboy. Our reproduction is much smaller and costs a lot less. It is electroplated with bronze to further mimic Remington's sculpture.
Do you know Frederic Remington dropped out of Yale after one year and traveled by himself to the West? Seeing the West for the first time it had a lifetime influence on him.
You have a choice of which size of Indian Chief Statue you prefer. If you want an impressive Chief, you'll want the large one that is 12 inches tall. The smaller Chief is about half of that in height.
The sculptor went overboard when he created this Indian Chief. Created in resin, you will see many feathers with so much detail. The Chief's race looks regal. Once the sculpting was complete and the mold created, the final step was electroplating the Indian Chief with a dark copper. Very Impressive. The base can have a plaque adhered for personalization.
Did you know three of the better known Indian Chief names were: Crazy Horse (1877), Sitting Bull (1890) and Geronimo (1909)? While smoking a pipe with Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse is claimed to say: "I see a time of Seven Generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole Earth will become one circle again......"
Cowgirl Statue by Remington. This cowgirl has great dudes! Check out her clothes. Cowboy hat, chaps, cowboy boots, bandana and more. Looks good!
Base is creative looking. Plaque not possible.
Wild West Shows introduced women as cowgirls. Ever heard of Annie Oakley???
Wearing a cowboy hat and chaps, this cowboy statue seems weary after a day's work. Note he's also wearing a holster. In fact, his hand is near his gun.
Because of the resin core, the cowboy statue has so much detail - you need to have it in your hand to see it all! Standing 10 inches high, it's a good statue of a cowboy. The base is not able to personalize.
