Description

Remington described The Mountain Man as one of the “old Iroquois trappers who followed the Fur Companies in the Rocky Mountains in the 1830s & 40’ties,” probably referring to French Canadian trappers. The sculptor chose a dramatic episode in the daily life of a trapper, his and his mount’s descent on an almost vertical slope. Man and horse work together to make the trip down a treacherously rocky decline: the horse has been given full rein to choose its pace and path; the rider leans sharply back and balances himself by holding on to the tail strap with his right hand. Cast by Roman Bronze Works in the lost-wax technique, the earliest of The Mountain Man statuettes are sharply delineated with a rich variety of textures, particularly evident in the fringed buckskin garment, the animal’s hairy hide, and the rocklike base. The base was cast separately from the house and rider, and the two units were pinned together through the left hind and right fore hooves. Cast in the superior “Lost Wax Casting” process. This statue is reproduced in the finest American bronze, finished in a dark brown patina and then hand-polished to bring out the incredible detail and highlights. The statue is then mounted on a fine marble base with an etched brass nameplate. Also available in 6 other sizes. This statue is made to order. Please allow 4-6 weeks for production¬† and delivery. Freight shipping included in price. Dimensions:¬† 11 ft. H x 8 ft. L x 4 ft. W
