Native American Mother and Baby by Gary Schildt

January 14th, 2006

This piece was made by Gary Schilt, who is a fairly well-known artist from Oregon. He sculted a lot of western scenes, this being one of them.

This piece was sculpted in 1966, and, as you can see, the attention to detail is just gorgeous!
