Scott Rogers

( b. 1961 )

3/4 Lifesize
Scott created this one-of-a-kind bronze for us in 2010 (1/1). DUTY BOUND depicts the frontier era South Texas brush country Ranger on horseback with Winchester at the ready. This compelling bronze evokes the spirit of Texas legend Leander McNelly as he "tamed the Nueces strip."
