122. Buffalo Soldier

Stop 122, Buffalo Soldier by Bobbie Carlyle from Colorado

Sponsor(s): Chankaska Creek Ranch & Winery

The essence of Carlyle’s work is “bold strength” and “provocative intelligence”. She has forged a highly respected career over three decades by creating compelling sculptures in bronze that are imaginative and exude vitality in their subjects which range from dynamic and historic figures to western sculptures to wildlife. These sculptures are the icons of heroes to our world and to us as individuals and seek to capture not only the historical background but the soul and essence of the figure. The sculptures go beyond the immediate interpretation into the psychological aspects of self-realization, worth and growth by using a traditional presentation with a twist.
