N.B. In the sculptures created in preparation for the mural River, Road and Point, Harry Jackson wanted each to specifically act out in detail what they would be within the illusionary three-dimensional space of the mural. Here the rugged Iroquois guide, vigilant from beneath the folds of his red blanket, cradles his rifle as he trudges through snow which clings to his fur boots.
Estimate $3,000-5,000
