Weekend Reflections – The End of the Trail

End of the Trail

The End of the Trail is a monumental sculpture by James Earle Fraser and is the entry hall centerpiece at the fabulous National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

The sculpture over the years as come to mean all sorts of things by all sorts of people. The museum has a short video that has one take on it.

    I’ve always loved the sculpture though I didn’t know much about it. It’s very poignant given the history of the Native Americans in USA (and Aboriginal people in Canada).

    I couldn’t find the video on the museum website–will try again, Yogi. I’ve seen a reproduction of this sculpture in many places and it always takes my breath away as it is so poignant–the struggle to get return home and almost making it.
