New Territory Sculptures

The New Territory Sculptures are fifteen sheet iron sculptures ranging in size from about 16 to 20 feet tall. They serve as silhouettes of Plains Indians. Designed by local artist ChaTullis, they stand atop a hill on West Main Street, viewable from various locations. The one at 101 North Haines Avenue is among the better vantage points.

Murals.

Indian Murals, Fake Hilltop Riders

The silhouettes are difficult to find, and not visible from where the app led me. I asked for directions in town, and by the time I got where I needed to be, it was dark and I couldn't see the hilltop artwork. The murals around town are pretty worn out, but still nice to look at.

Lesson learned, make sure you have plenty of daylight for this trip.

Indian Murals, fake hilltop horse riders

Full size murals of various Indian scenes painted on the sides of business buildings. there are also silhouette sculptures of Indians on horseback standing on the top of a hill overlooking the town. At sundown, it looks very realistic. All the work is done by a local Indian artist artist, who also has a jewelry and gift shop in town.

The town of Hominy, Oklahoma, has much to offer, largely thanks to the efforts of artist Cha' Tullis. He has painted 40 murals on buildings all over town and, finally, a crowning achievement, 15 silhouette sculptures of mounted Indians, 16-19' tall each, on a hillside overlooking the town.
