Tulsa Love

Made this quilt in honor of my beloved hometown.  Happy to be a Native.  Depicted on upper right is Cyrus Dallin's "Appeal to the Great Spirit", the last of 4 bronze equestrian sculptures from his "The Epic of the Indian" series.  The sculpture was cast in 1909 in Paris and won a gold medal for its exhibition in the Paris Salon.  There are 3 full sized casts of the sculpture:  One in Muncie, Indiana, One in Tulsa's Woodward Park and One in front of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.

BTW: Current Chihuly Exhibit at MFA Boston: Fantastic!
