Big Indian: Chief Touch the Clouds

Chief Touch the Clouds is on a busy street, but right across the road is a picnic pavilion that you can pull into and take photos from, or you can cross the street to get close. I am impressed by the beauty of the workmanship on the sculptor!

[O. Massey, 07/05/2015]

Chief Touch the Clouds stood outside the Houston Astrodome for years. He was moved to Edmond in May 2015.
