Cochise

Cochise was chief of the Apache Indians in Arizona circa 1850. In 1861 he was wrongly accused of stealing cattle and kidnapping a rancher’s son. The U.S. Army sent cavalry Lieutenant George Bascom to arrest Cochise and bring him to justice. Bascom invited Cochise to his tent and arrested him for his alleged crimes. Cochise drew his knife, slashed an opening in the tent and escaped. This event started the Apache Wars which spread terror across the Southwest for 25 years. Lt. Bascom was a fifth cousin to the artist Earl Bascom. This imposing figure, sculpted in 1976, depicts Cochise in typical Southwest Apache Indian attire astride his pony with rifle in hand. Truly the head of his tribe, this bronze shows strength in the true character of this proud Indian Chief and the wildness of his Indian pony. Limited Edition of 75
