Omaha sculptor Matthew Placzek was commissioned to realize Brcin’s work. Fifteen feet high, the 5,000-pound bronze sculpture, titled Sioux Warrior, sits atop a six-foot base of concrete encased in Lake Superior Green granite to the east of the Joslyn building on axis with the Walter and Suzanne Scott Pavilion. The Art Deco-style horse and Indian rider face north toward Joslyn’s parking garden. The sculpture was cast and assembled at the Loveland Bronze Services foundry in Loveland, Colorado, and installed at Joslyn on October 20, 2008.
