Mother gazes out to the horizon perhaps watching her husband work the fields as sister plays a game of hide and seek with the rag doll with baby brother. The title "Mother of the Plains" has a two-fold meaning. One is obvious, she is a plains woman and a Mother. The other, less obvious, but just as great, is that our great plains "mothered" a people who fueled their dreams with long tedious hours of sweat, toil and tears; suffering through unbearable hardships in losses of family members due to sickness and even murderous attacks; struggling through dust bowls, drought, fires and famine, none of which quenched their dreams or aspirations. With great courage and fortitude, they gave their children, and ours, the heritage and legacy of the great plains and this great nation. Edition #1 of 5 will be installed at Fort Morgan Museum, Fort Morgan, CO, Fall of 2002
Dawn Weimer "Touching the Spirit"
Contact Tom to inquire about or purchase any of her fine bronze sculpture creations. "Touching the Spirit" goes a long way in describing her fine work. Always in bronze, never inexpensive substitutes. We accept Checks, cash and wire transfer (call for instructions).
Dawn Weimer Studios offers only lost wax bronze sculpture cast with the utmost care and integrity at Art Castings of Colorado in Loveland, Colorado, ("Sculptureville,USA!"). As each different sculpture edition of Dawn's sells out, a letter is sent to every collector of that bronze piece stating that this particular edition/size is sold out... Enclosed with the letter is a small piece cut from my original mold which further verifies that this particular edition/size will not be produced again. Should you ever come across a sculpture you feel is suspicious of being a imitation of one of my pieces, please contact me so I can look into the matter of possible violation of copyright.
Virtually any bronze can (because of the NEW 3-D technology) NOW be made a larger Table-size or even larger lifesize and/or monumental... Look for announcements of NEW enlargements of several of Dawn's bronze sculptures soon! Inquiries for all these various sizes are welcome.
