From the Metmuseum.org website
“James Earle Fraser’s End of the Trail is one of the most iconic works featured in The American West in Bronze, 1850–1925. First modeled in 1894, the sculpture is based on Fraser’s experiences growing up in Dakota Territory; as he wrote in his memoirs, “as a boy, I remembered an old Dakota trapper saying, ‘The Indians will someday be pushed into the Pacific Ocean.’” The artist later said that, “the idea occurred to me of making an Indian which represented his race reaching the end of the trail, at the edge of the Pacific.”

SHIPPING: I ship on business days and as quickly as possible. If there will be a delay in shipping I will notify you. Saturday, Sunday & Holidays are not considered business days. Once an item is dropped off at the Post Office it is trackable, but I am no longer able to control the handling of the item. This includes the speed of delivery. I will work with you and USPS to follow up on the safe delivery of the packages. Please make sure you provide the correct address in the "ship to" field, as I cannot be responsible for items that are shipped to an incorrect address.
I prefer to ship all items priority mail, which includes tracking and insurance. Some items do qualify for 1st class postage.
Shipping costs are calculated according to weight and size of shipment. If you are overcharged, I will refund the excess postage.
