Keeper of the Plains

It was a cloudless summer Saturday as I found my way along the banks of the Arkansas river. No real destination in mind, just a few hours to kill before my flight home from a long week of work.

I stumble upon the Keeper of the Plains, a statue built by Native American artist Blackbear Bosin and donated to the city of Wichita in 1974.

You can feel the Great Spirit whirling around in the reeds along the river, in the feathers of the hungry ducks, in the ridges on the rocks.

The circle of life : Water.Fire.Air.Earth.

Who knew that Wichita had this to offer? I was pleasantly surprised.
