There is no more unique an American icon than the cowboy. What child at one point or another has not dreamed of the opportunity to live the life of daring and freedom that the cowboy epitomizes? With the subtlety, elegance and grace of a fine art master, Mian Situ makes an epic statement on the emigrant experience, pealing back the curtain on the process through which cultures blend. The importance of this work was not lost on those that attended the 2004 Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale where it was honored with the Patron's Choice Award. Situ is renowned for majestic works of art conveying the Asian-American experience of emigrating and opening a new world. Here we witness the other side of that experience, the assimilation of the American dream.
