Stalking Kúcu
Cast In Bronze
This is a half life-sized bronze that pays tribute to the Ute Indians that inhabited large areas of the Southwest. This bronze, titled Stalking Kúcu "(koo-choo)" which is the Ute Indian word for buffalo. Prior to the arrival of horses, one technique the Indians used to hunt kúcu was to disguise themselves as wolves. The poor sighted kúcu were used to wolves hanging around and would stand their ground allowing the hunters to get a close enough for a shot.  This piece captures the intense, adrenaline-filled moment, frozen in time where the sleek predator moves with calculated grace as he approaches his prey, every muscle taut with anticipation.
