Life-Size Veryl Goodnight Bronze Sculpture-Woman and Orphaned Deer 'Number 1'


This stunning life-size bronze is by Veryl Goodnight, a renowned American West sculptor. Veryl has dozens of works in museums all over the country, as well as abroad. She was recently inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame which honors pioneering and courageous women of the American West. One of her best known sculptures is a large Equine sculpture portraying 5 horses jumping over salvaged pieces of the Berlin Wall. It is titled "The Day the Wall Came Down", and it currently stands at The George H.W. Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas. A second one, finished in 1998, was given to Germany as a gift from the United States. In October 2000, Veryl was the recipient of the Central Intelligence Agency's "Agency Seal Medallion" in recognition for her vision of freedom for "The Day The Wall Came Down." The sculpture below was made in 1985, and it is the first in a series of only 9 ever produced. The mold no longer exists. "Cares for Her Brothers" is the title of this piece, and it depicts a woman cradling an orphaned deer. The Denver Zoo and Brookgreen Gardens Sculpture Museum have one of these as well. Cares for her brothers (Number 1 of 9).
