A male figure of a Sioux scout on horseback, his proper right hand raised to his forehead to shield his eyes from the sun as he looks north toward the Missouri River.
The Scout was conceived in 1915 by Cyrus E. Dallin (1861-1944) for the Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco, where it won a gold medal. On its way back east, the statue was exhibited on a temporary basis in Penn Valley Park. The statue was so well received that $15,000 was raised in nickels and dimes through a campaign called The Kids of Kansas City. The statue was dedicated in 1922 as a permanent memorial to local Indian tribes.
Same artist as Massasoit
REALLY IS MORE A QUESTION DID THIS ARTIST MAKE ANY SMALLER BRONZE SCULPTURES OF THE SCOUT?
If you google for Cyrus Edwin Dallin Scout - you should find some smaller versions of the Scout, but I have no further information on them. Maxine
Yes. I have one of them. I can send you a pic of it if you like.
LIKE + FAV.!
