I love the header photograph I've just posted behind my blog title. It's a gorgeous shot of a Native American sculpture erected on a tiny island on Lake Winnipesaukee, Meredith, NH. According to a Facebook entry by Edward Phelps Grace III
Glenn Hines of Houlton, Maine and his wife, Diane, crafted the imposing 11,000-pound eight-foot tall replica of the Native American that graces Indian Island in Meredith Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee by day’s end.
Local residents and businesses collectively donated some $58,000 to fund the creation of the bronze and another $5,000 to restore the badly eroded island.The small island was originally home to a zinc sculpture of an Indian that had been part of a collection owned by local coal magnate Edward H. Clough. Given to the town around 1924, the war-like Indian was dubbed "Chief Chocorua" by the locals.
Pretty glorious, don't you think?
I live in such a beautiful place.
