Buffalo and Indian

Cool big buffalo and Indian statues stand next to an old barn.

[Nettie, 07/15/2020]

The concrete statues were acquired by Ray Steele, who once ran a real estate business out of the adjacent building. They were sculpted by Bruce Carty, a student of Ken Fox; Fox also made giant concrete statues. The buffalo has a time capsule in its butt.
