Here, for the seminal battle that set the trajectory of Western expansion, I had to depict the adversaries in motion. Each of the two sculptures represents one man and his mission during a momentous clash between two cultures. The busts of the men are cast in bronze as recognizable portraits of the emissaries representing their people, US General George Armstrong Custer of the 7th Cavalry and Chief Sitting Bull of the Hunkpapa Lakota. Bison are their steeds and their frames, the primary symbol that stands for the differences in how the two cultures viewed natural resources. Like the men, these two bison bulls are at odds in the sculpture. Fighting for their lives.
