In particular, it portrays a group at 1.5 times life size, running through a watercourse, with fountains giving the effect of water splashed by the animals’ hooves. The horses represent the drive, initiative and unfettered lifestyle that were fundamental to the state in its pioneer days.

Born in Kenya in 1940, Robert Glen showed interest in art and natural history at an early age. A fascination with birds and all living things led him to the Nairobi Museum of Natural History. Meanwhile, at the age of 14, Glen, invited to serve as an expedition assistant to Mr. Williams, collected research specimens of birds for European museums. And two years later, he began his three-year apprenticeship in the renowned taxidermy studio of Coloman Jonas in Denver, Colorado. It was here that his interest in sculpture and design took hold. Returning home, Robert began a transition from taxidermy to sculpting animals. In particular, in the European tradition of Animaliers, working in various media before casting his first bronze in 1970.

Glen’s public commissions include one of Texas’ proudest monuments and one of the largest equestrian sculptures in the world.
