Buffalo Horse View 1

A bronze replica of a sculpture by Frederic Remington (1861 - 1901), known as one of the premier artists of the American West.

Buffalo Horse depicts the climactic moment of a collision between an American bison and a horse being ridden by an American Indian hunter. The horse's forelegs are across the shoulders of the bison, and the rider is in an inverted position at the midpoint of being thrown from the horse's back.

This sculpture is part of the Remington Walk, a collection of 12 sculptures that line a section of the Green Monster walking path between Stadium View apartments and Dial-Roberson Stadium on Ohio Northern University's Campus.

The sculptures were cast by A & S Foundry in Sun Valley, CA and donated by James and Eilleen Dicke.
