Yesterday I mentioned the large sculpture celebrates the nineteenth century cattle drives that took place along the Shawnee Trail. Artist Robert Summers of Glen Rose, Texas created 70 bronze steers and 3 trail riders sculptures. Each steer is larger-than-life at six feet high. All together the sculpture is the largest bronze monument of its kind in the world. Set along an artificial ridge, man-made limestone cliff the native landscaping with a flowing stream and waterfall creates a dramatic effect.

Here are additional pictures I took of the sculptures in December 2008. Click on them and they will enlarge.
