Pumunangwet (He Who Shoots the Stars) sculpture, c. 1940 is on the grounds of the Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, Ma.
I shot this from low on the ground to eliminate the red brick building in the background.
Preservationist, Clara Endicott Sears, began collecting Native American artifacts and established the American Indian Museum in 1928, expanding it in 1932. You can see the exhibit of One Thousand Generations and learn about North American Indians in the exhibit Objects and Meaning. Enter a wigwam, grind corn, and discover how dugout canoes were made. In addition to this outdoor sculpture of Pumunangwet, there is also Wo-peen the Dreamer.

That is a dramatic sculpture, your low POV does it justice. It would not be the same against a red brick building. HLJ, Pat

New England has a lot of interesting history for sure. Simple but effective composition combined with excellent pov that makes the viewer follow the arrow's direction into the sky. Regards,
