"The Bowman" - Chicago

watercolor 14 x 21

This is one of the fine statues that we have in Chicago. There are two like this. This one is the Bowman and then the other one is the Spearman. It looks like they have weapons, but they do not. One story says that they do not have the weapons because it represents the hard times that the American Indians had to go through. Another story says it is because it symbolizes peace.

I am very familiar with this statue because a few times in the past we got a room in the hotel right across and the window looked out into the the twin statues :) And you have captured the scene beautifully !
