2007 / Frederic Remington / Ada

Mountain Man View 1

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

Mountain Man depicts a trapper wearing fringed buckskin descending a steep slope on horseback. Despite the precarious position of the horse, the trapper's placid expression tells of the everyday nature of the task.

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.
