The Pioneering Spirit
I found this statue outside of one of the government buildings in downtown Phoenix. It has no plaque to identify the artist or the name of the piece. It has a bit of a pioneer look to it with the man here helping the horse carrying his wife over the rocks.
It's not a huge sculpture, only about 5 to 6 feet tall and sitting on a pedestal or plinth. It's just a guess but, I think it's been sitting here (or somewhere else before here) for a long time. It looks like it's seen its share of the elements.
