Drama on the Plains
Gloss:
Houser, a Chiricahua Apache, carved and modeled sculptures which drew upon his Indian heritage. He said "My inspiration came from the stories that were told to me by my father...." The Buffalo Bill Historical Center commissioned this bronze from Houser, in conjunction with the opening of the Plains Indian Museum. The bronze edition was based on the artist's alabaster carving of the subject, which is on view in the Plains Indian Museum.
