In the '60s when I was a little girl, Mom ironed every day. I remember the "hisss" of the steam and the fresh smell of laundry starch as she pressed out the wrinkles from cotton shirts and dresses and sheet sets. She taught us to iron by starting out ironing my dads hankies.
This life-sized sculpture, located near Wichita Falls, Texas features a Comanche family crossing the Wichita River. The legend of their crossing defines where Wichita, KS and Wichita Falls got their names. This multi-part piece of art is of a Comanche woman, her child, & two braves set in the natural beauty of rock & flowing water. The woman is testing the river's depth, as the legend tells, and describes it as "waist-deep", which is how "Wee-chi-tah" is translated. Jack Stevens, Artist
