'Mini Rider' -Mutton Bustin (Also available in a life size monument)
9"H x 13"L x 4"W
Edition of 48

This was another monument commission for the city of Rifle, CO. It was installed at the entrance to their fairgrounds. I had a blast researching the whole Mutton Bustin` phenomenon. Evidently, There`s something very entertaining about watching a kid fall off a bounding sheep.
