Theme Day-Statues: The Cowboy

I have posted many pictures of artistic statues that I have taken in this fair city: Native Americans because of their historical significance in this part of the country, animals of all species, and even naked/nude women exhibited in galleries on Canyon Road.   But what could be more representative of the American Southwest than the ubiquitous cowboy! So here he is!

  1. Great choice, instantly came to my mind at least 5 westerns. The sculpture look almost alive! Get well soon.

  2. He looks familiar, like a film actor but I can't think...

  3. Even up here in the Northeast... always have been enthralled by the iconic cowboy lifestyle.

  6. I love this. But then I love cowboys and bronzes.

  7. He looks very pensive. He is worrying about more than where is the next cow to brand.

  9. I agree that there is a certain familiarity about him...maybe a mix of Steve McQueen and Ronnie Reagan...

    Anyway, it's a very cool statue and a great theme day post!

  10. Kate, just wanted to tell you that, although I might not always leave a comment, I love all your photos every day.

    I've been having problems with a spammer/stalker (don't even know what to call such a mean person) over on my blog and have had to make it private and accessible only to those I've invited. The problem with that is that I don't have email addresses for many of my blogger friends (like you) that visit my blog.

    So, be patient with me. When I get up my courage to deal once again with these meanies, I'll go public again--maybe in a week or two.
