Edition 65

The Boykin Spaniel was originally bred by South Carolina sportsmen to hunt ducks
and wild turkeys.   It is medium sized, slightly larger than the Cocker Spaniel and is
known for its rich brown coat.  Traditionally, the tail is docked, and the bred is easily
identified by the long, feathered ears that hang close to the checks.  The web-toed
dog has a very sweet disposition, is impressive in the field and makes a great pet.
It is the state dog of South Carolina.

     The macaw was sacred to the Anasazi Indians.  According to legend, they 
believed the macaw took the sun south to its winter home and returned 
it in the spring. Trading with Mexican tribes supplied macaws to the Anasazi; 
their brilliant feathers provided were sacred objects.  Today, the pueblo people, 
descendants of the Anasazi use the birds in their rituals.

#727 "Untamed"












"Untamed"
37"H 39"W 18"D
Edition 9

The idea for “Untamed” happened in Wyoming while antelope hunting in the 
high sage along the eastern slope of the Wind River Mountain Range.  As we 
crawled over a rise we knew something was happening by the dust cloud ahead.

Less than 200 yards away two stallions were fighting among a herd of 
wild horses.  The hooves, the mane, and the dust was flying as we 
watched the wild, unbridled spectacle.  My sculpture was before me.

"Untamed" won the Cyrus Dallin Award for Best Sculpture at the 
Eitlejorg Museum 2019 Quest for the West Art Show.

Years ago I read a story by Louis L’Amour, Will James, or Walter Farley – I don’t 
remember who – about cattle on the long drives from Texas to Kansas.  The critters 
could actually smell water up ahead on the wind along the hot dusty trails.

It remained in my memory and as I created “Scent of Water”, 
I attempted to engage the viewer in this tale of the old west

I grew up in Oklahoma and my Father loved to rodeo when I was  little kid.  
His event was calf roping and I would tag along and enjoy the action.
Saddle Bronc riding was my favorite rodeo event because it seemed 
to depict ranch life in an authentic way.  My new sculpture, “Bronc” 
is a high relief fragment that can be presented as a mantelpiece.  
The sculpture depicts an old time cowboy attempting to break a rank horse.

#722 "The Boss"



"The Boss"
11"H 15"W 7"D
Edition 25

My new sculpture, "The Boss" depicts the distinctive presence of a Brahma Bull. 
Brahma cattle originated in India where they are considered sacred and were 
brought to the United States in the late 1800s.  Also referred to as Brahman, 
the breed is tolerant to heat and insects due its thick skin but also does well 
in cold climates.  Interestingly, Brahma cattle, like the camel, stores food 
and water in the hump on its back.

While creating "The Boss", I attempted to show the tension of skin stretched 
over the internal anatomy while retaining overall clarity and simplicity.  
This powerful animal was a delight to work with . . . the sentiment 
and spirit were derived from the subject!

The Raven is considered to be the messenger between the living and the spirit 
world by many Pacific Northwest Indian tribes.  The Haida believed that Raven, 
creator of the world, brought forth light, life and order and that nothing could 
exist without Raven.  The sacred bird is honored in art and on totem poles 
reflecting the tales and mysticism that have developed around it.  
Some tribes believe that Raven teaches you to understand 
the language of animals and if Raven comes into your life, 
expect magic.  With Raven, human and animal spirits 
intermingle and become as one.

#718 "Rock of Liberty"


















"Rock of Liberty"
33"H 32"W 27"D
Edition 25

Sandy's majestic eagle sculptures have been placed nationwide in important locations 
such as the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, WY, Hillsdale College in 
Michigan, Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina, The Presidio in San Francisco, The Patriot Folds of Honor Golf Course in Tulsa, OK, and numerous veterans memorials across the Country.  Her eagle monuments can also be 
seen in various colleges, universities, roundabouts, civic and private installations.

Her new bronze sculpture, "Rock of Liberty" was designed as an indoor or outdoor placement.  Sandy comments:  "While creating this work, I attempted to combine uncomplicated shapes and a strong silhouette in an effort to communicate power and victory.  The massive rock that merges with the mass of the bird suggests the solidarity 
and resolve of America.  The iconic eagle is a symbol of our great nation and the 
beautiful bird continues to inspire my sculpture and is a reminder of my love of country."

#717 "Bison Basin"







"Bison Basin"
19"H 18"W 11"D
Edition 35

The American Bison or buffalo has been elevated to the stature of the 
American Bald Eagle as a national emblem of our great country.  
Under recent legislation the bison became the National Mammal 
of the United States due to its economic and cultural 
significance in the history of our great country. 

Not long ago more than 60 million roamed North America but by 1890 
their story almost ended with extinction. The iconic mammal’s largest 
population today resides in Yellowstone National Park – two hours from 
my Wyoming studio.  While the bison has long been a favorite subject 
for my sculpture.  It is more than an animal to me, it is an emotional 
manifesto that exemplifies my deep affinity for the West and its history.
