Basque Shepherd

Basque ShepherdDoug grew up with the Basques in Nevada.  He drank his first wine out of a tin can from a Basque shepherd’s large round glass jug enclosed in a rope webbing and tied to the side of his wagon.  Doug and his father made many trips out into the mountains of Nevada where they encountered the Basque shepherds and found them very knowledgeable about the out-of-doors and great studies in character.  This bronze sculpture is a maquette for the 11′ monument sculptured for John Ascuaga’s Nugget in Sparks, Nevada, as a tribute to the Basque people who pioneered Nevada. With built-in turntable, this piece can be enjoyed at all angles. (See Monuments)
