Iron Tracks Through The West -  by Chris Navarro
  Iron Tracks Through The West  (2005)
Dimensions (inches): 12 x 28 x 8.5
Medium: bronze
Description: This sculpture of the westward progress brought by the Iron Horse tells that story by merging the forces and figures that transformed the American West. Like a stream flowing to a river, the iron tracks of the railroad brought change and accelerated the development and progress of America. The railroad connected the people of the Atlantic and Pacific it joined a diverse nation. The large steam engine and coal car in partial relief symbolize the American drive to forge ahead through industry and technology.
The right side of the sculpture shows a Plains Indian on a swift pony pursuing running buffalo; they represent the native people and animals of this untamed land. As the running buffalo move through the sculpture they merge into longhorn cattle, which soon replaced the buffalo that grazed the open grasslands of the prairie. A cowboy on horseback, the very image of the west, drives this heard.
Behind these figures, sculpted in relief, rises the Rocky Mountains. An eagle flies through the sky, which is silhouetted in the shape of a locomotive. The eagles soaring flight symbolizes the freedom and hope of our great nation.
