Indian Buffalo Hunter In Trouble
Tribal Impressions Calls This Work: Indian Trouble!
This stunning museum
quality Frederic Remington Bronze is highly impressive! Although
photos really do not do it justice, we find this fine work of art
one of the most interesting Indian Bronze Sculptures ever created!
The Owner of Tribal Impressions Gallery fell in love with this one
and wanted to keep it but the staff convinced him it needs to be
sold. He simply calls it "Indian Trouble!" The Indian
was obviously buffalo hunting on his horse but the horse gets to
the buffalo and decides to jump it. As you can see, the horse might
not make it and the faith of the Indian certainly lies in the balance
of rather the horse makes the jump or not. The event quickly turns
from what's for dinner to will I be alive by dinner time. This finely
detailed museum quality replica of the priceless original is in
very very limited supply but Tribal Impressions has managed to obtain
one and one only issued with a name plate that says Tribal Impressions
on it. It's currently on display in our showroom.
Views Of The Finely Detailed Remington Bronze
Fredric Remington 's work is internationally known and he is likely
the best known artist who really captured the West. His work is
highly prized and highly collectable. His career spanned less than
25 years yet he, like no other person; produced a huge collection
of illustrations, oil painting, sculptures, fiction and non-fiction
and the vast majority of that work centered on the West. The artist
died in 1909 but his work, especially his sculptures; have become
the center piece of almost all Western sculpture collectors and
museums. Of the 22 Fredric Remington bronze sculptures, we find
this one of the most interesting and we have managed to obtain one
of them you will enjoy for a lifetime.
Little History And A Sad Story
It must be said that the American Buffalo was, at one time; the
mainstay of Native American life. At one time in America there where
tens of thousands of them running in the wild in large herds. It's
been estimated that at one time in America there were about 50 million
buffalo rooming the American Plains. Native Americans hunted them
for food and every piece of the Buffalo was used for something.
The meat was their main food source. The hides were used for clothing
and shelter. The buffalo horn and bones were used in ceremonies
and religious practices. Because of a bad immigration policy which
let the white man come into their land, the American Buffalo was
slandered into extinction by the white man mainly out of greed and
to make Native Americans starve and force them onto reservations.
By the 1870's, with the encouragement of the US Government, huge
buffalo herds were being slaughtered by the thousands just for the
sport of it. It wasn't uncommon for travelers in the West to come
upon vast buffalo herds consisting of herds of dead buffalo shot
by white man simply rotting away in the hot sun. White man almost
slaughtered them into obliviation. Fortunately today, many Native
American tribes are raising and herding buffalo again. This museum
quality bronze sculpture in a great tribute to those brave Native
American buffalo hunters and to both horses and buffalo which once
roomed the great plains of the United States.
How Fredric Remington Bronzes Are Made
This high end museum quality bronze is done from high grade silicon
bronze which costs a whole lot more than standard grade bronze.
Because of the special process, much more detail comes out and it
lasts a whole lot longer. The foundry authorized to make Fredic
Remington Bronzes is in the United States and they have been doing
these museum quality pieces for 33 years. Their clients include
the White House, presidential libraries, museums and public parks
within the United States.
Is Fine Art!
This is fine art at it's best! The first weekend Indian In Trouble
was on display in our Tribal Impressions Gallery, a Native American
couple (husband and wife) came in and wrapped themselves in buffalo
hides (which Tribal Impressions also trades in), sat down in our
leather bench used to try moccasins on and gazed at this work of
art for almost an hour. The lady was in tears. If you get a chance,
come by and see this piece in our showroom. Click
