"My new sculpture, THE GREETER is based on an account by Geroge Catlin of the time he spent with Black Moccasin who was the Chief of the Hidatsa's. Catlin believed the Chief to be over 100 years old at that time. Black Moccasin shared with Catlin many of his recollections of Lewis and Clark. He was the first of his tribe to meet them some 30 years prior. This sculpture is my interpretation of what Black Moccasin may have looked like at that time; a man in his 70's standing on the bank of the Missouri River, holding his ceremonial pipe and making a welcoming gesture with his eagle fan."
