Another of the park statue Native American representations found in the office complex park in St. Petersburg, Florida. This one represents the wisdom of the elder, something respected by the first Americans. The current ones, maybe not so much.

This bronze figure depicts Pariskaroopa, Two Crows, sculpted by John Coleman from an 1832 painting of the chief by George Caitlin. According to the Coleman Studios website, Caitlin was fascinated by the physical charistics of the Crow, noting that the men were at least six feet tall and had long hair that swept the ground and was groomed daily with bear grease.

UPDATE 19 June 2011: this image has been up for almost two years, and the view count is just now at 540.

    Great capture and treatments

  • Thanks very much. It’s been in my portfolio for a while, in color with blue sky background. I just reworked it yesterday to make it sepia; adding the enlarged face helped the composition, I think.
