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
