I was in Boston last weekend and was surprised to see this sculpture of an Indian arrowing a pronghorn in front of the Museum of Fine Art! Looks like a hard quartering away shot.

Thought I would share.

If the Boston Globe finds out about this their next editorial will surely call for it's removal. Glorifies animal hate crime.

It was by Paul Manship, and it said something like Part of a group with Manship’s “Pronghorn Antelope.” A Native American man, draped in animal skin, crouches and holds his bow, having just released an arrow.

And in person, you can see the arrow entering the rib cage, but it is in a bad angle for a clean kill.

That ain't a bow, there ain't no wheels on it...8^)

Impressive that the museum gets away with such an honest and beautiful sculpture (or that some tweaker hasn't stolen it for the bronze scrap value). Mr. Manship knows his subject. Hopefully the animal rights wackos that undoubtedly troll this site don't get wind of it.

Looks to me like he made a good hit on a quartering away antelope then after the hit the front leg moved back when the goat started to run causing the arrow shaft to be pushed back. So at the very moment the sculpture was made it only appears to be a bad angle!

Also the shooter looks to be a pretty fit dude so he can probably stay on the track until said antelope expires. Pretty cool!!!
