Indian Hunter and His Dog

One of an edition of 12, the Museum's bronze Indian Hunter and His Dog is a reduction of a life-size fountain commissioned for a park in St. Paul, Minnesota, Manship's birthplace. Manship often commented that he preferred Indian Hunter and His Dog over any of his other works.

Paul Manship is an artist of the highest stature in American art. His sculpture is beautifully designed without loss of human love for his motif. There are several avenues of approach to a work of art. The one created by Manship is distinctly his own and will live in the great tradition as a major contribution to the art of our time.
