Description "On the Border of White Man's Land" by Solon Borglum

Group/Indian/horse/stealth

"An Indian has crawled to the edge of a cliff to spy from beneath his horse, sheltered by its lowered head. He lies on the ground wrapped in a blanket, his left hand clutching a gun. The horse's tail, to which the eagle's feather is tied, is blown between its legs, completing the curve made by the bent neck and the Indian's half-raised body. The sculptor has concentrated on the compact massing of the bodies of horse and man and the impression of tense watchfulness, modeling the forms broadly without exact detail." ("Brookgreen Gardens Sculpture", Beatrice Gilman Proske, 1968).
