Town Tamer vs. Not-So-Gentle Tamer
April 25, 2012
Ed Riley from Bronzesmith in Prescott Valley dropped by last night to show me the precast of the ten-foot version of Not-So-Gentle Tamer. Here's a sneak peek at this big sucker:
Ain't she a beaut? That's Ken Amorosano at left, and Ed at right, holding on her arms. Ed had the lovely lady in pieces in his pickup and on a trailer. Did a sketch this morning of the original town tamer and frontier marshal channeling Sam Elliott.
Sam would make a great Wyatt Earp. His craggy visage is pretty strong.
