Notes The scuplture depicts a cowboy on a bucking horse. He is leaning to one side with his hat in right hand and the reins in left. The horse has a brand on its right flank; its back is arched and his front hooves are both off the ground. The subject was one that Russell was very familiar with, having depicted an ornery bucking bronc in paintings a number of times.
