Artist's Description

“Leatherlips…first Art in Public Places project, was created by Boston artist Ralph Helmick in 1990. The sculpture is a 12-foot high portrait of the Wyandot Native American Chief Leatherlips. The head is a composite structure of various sizes of native limestone stacked and mortared. The head is open on the top and extended back along its sides, creating a small enclosure which enables visitors a view of the river, the sunset, and the amphitheater.
Local history relates that the Wyandot Native American, Chief Leatherlips, was executed by fellow tribesman at a location very near to Scioto Park. In fact, Chief Leatherlips’ last hunting camp is said to have been located 2 miles north of Historic Dublin along the banks of the Scioto river near to the exact location of the present day park. Early histories by the white settlers of the time described the old Chief as intelligent, dignified and peaceful.“
