End of the Trail View 1

A bronze replica of a sculpture by James Earle Fraser (1876 - 1953), American sculptor and designer of the buffalo nickel.

End of the Trail, Fraser's most famous sculpture and one of the most recognized of the American West, depicts an exhausted American Indian hunched over his tired horse with a spear loosely held under his right arm and hanging down by the horse's lowered head.

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.
