Bowman

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 8 March 2021 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Birds find a resting place on top of the Bowman, one of two bronze Indian warrior sculptures in Chicago. The 17-foot equestrian statue sits across Congress Parkway from the Spearman, both sculpted by Ivan Mestrovic and installed in 1928. Both guard the entrance to Grant Park.

In the background stands the Auditorium Building, home to Roosevelt University.

Dramatic sculpture nicely rendered by you with the B/W concentrating the eye nicely on the form. But dis they really ride around stark naked except for a large feather headdress :)

This is a striking black and white image. The artist of this sculpture has done an exceptional job with proportions of the horse and its rider. What a magnificent work of art.

Beautiful statue. I hope no one decides it is offensive for some silly reason and demands it be removed. There is too much of that sort of thing going on now.

Excellent artistic work. All the muscles of the statue, are very well evidenced. There is not a drop of fat on that person and horse.
