Our city leaders over the past years decided that the downtown area needed a little spiffing up. So over the course of time we have erected some statues and other items of artwork in the downtown area. A lot of these are statues that are placed strategically on city walkways so that all citizens can enjoy them. Some of them are actually very nice. Some a little strange. Others downright wierd.
This first one is called the Keeper of the Plains, and this statue appeared on my first blog post and is situated where the Little Arkansas and Big Arkansas rivers meet. It is actually quite nice and serves as a focal point for the community. The St. Louis Arch it isn't , but it's okay for our fair city. Just remember, the river here is not pronounced Arkansaw.This next one deserves a little explanation and has a bit of a history to it. There are 3 pictures corresponding to each leg of the sculpture. Not sure what it really is, but Artsy it is. It is known locally as the "Tripodal"
