Commission Objective

To design and produce a bronze sculpture depicting a tri-cultural subject with a business theme commemorating the centennial celebration of New Mexico State University. As the artist, I chose an early trade scene circa 1850 in Northern New Mexico as my general subject. To insure the historical accuracy of my subject, I conducted extensive research at the Palace of the Governors Musuem in Santa Fe, as well as the Ernest Thompson Seton Museum at the Philmount Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico.
