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).
