Bronze Statue of a Rancher

As I was driving one day in Carefree, Arizona looking for photo opportunities, I came across this driveway at the base of a mountain with this exquisite bronze statue of a rancher or cowboy at the modern gate.

It is a fabulous statue and he looks like he is staring at you and could interact with you.

I would have liked to have visited this house. If the owners have paid this much attention to detail to place a statue amid the artistic trees at the entrance to their home, their home must be filled with wonderful art to enjoy.

Tomorrow I will show a house on the mountain just down the road from this house.

What an excellent sculpture. For those who come after, definitely enlarge this to see the craftsmanship. Nice shot, Julie.

Great find! It often amazes me the things you can find just driving around in residential areas.

I like it especially because of the dual-tone which is not often seen.

I wouldn't want to mess with this guy. Nice capture!

Bronze sculture must be the in thing right now. Sharon has it on Phoenix DP and Wolynski has it on hers Vegasimages.

That statue looks like a man with a lot of cool stories to tell.
