Notes

In a letter to his brother Luther in 1925, Manship described his plan for Indian Hunter and His Dog: "I have decided to make an Indian hunter, with his dog, running—in bronze, life size. This will be the central motif in the basin, 22 feet in diameter, with four bronze geese set between the central group and the rim of the basin, which will spout water into the air; something like this." He then included this sketch of the sculpture in his letter.
