Lovely statue and story, thanks PKH.
Beautifully sculptured statue, nice to know you don't have vandals pumpkin,Thank you for this beautiful puzzle.
Pumpkin I did not know they hunted Indians in that part of the country. Learn something new every day.
I like this one too. The statue , the colours and, of course, the sunshine!! Thanks, Suzy.
Ank, I believe that the Iroquois used dogs (I think from the wolf or coyote family) as pack animals. It is a really nice sculpture fack and islandflyer. Thank you for the nice comments.
Nice photo, ph.
real beautiful Francine!
This is very beautiful Suzy, I also did not know the indians used dogs. Thanks for showing and telling about it.
Sally-The rest of the leg is behind the vegetation-it's the angle that I took it from. No vandals! :)
Thanks snooker and Patt and chookies and Morris. Pat, I am sure your visit to the Otesaga was a memorable one. We live only about 30 miles away from Coooperstown, and each time we go there we discover something new.
Looks like one of the dogs back legs has been broken off.... Vandals in Cooperstown, how low can you go.... Thanks for the history pumpkin.... A well matched team, man and dog.... :) :)
Very cool, pumpkin!!
What a wonderful looking statue, thanks punkin:)
This is really interesting, because, thanks to my "don't know much about history" education, I didn't realize that Indians used dogs in their hunting. And I wish I had seen this when I stayed at the Otesaga Hotel about 10 years ago--it was a Bar Association meeting for my husband, and, while it included the Baseball Museum, it left little time for exploring things like this... Thanks for posting it!
Like the rock and vegetation around the statue.
Nice sculpture! Thanks!
Thanks, Chickster and lyndee!
I love this statue Pumpkin. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Thanks for the explanation punkie.
The Indian Hunter. This statue was created by John Quincy Adams Ward (1830?1910) . It depicts a Native American hunter, bow in hand, restraining his snarling hunting dog. The sculpture is located in a lake front park in Cooperstown, NY.
