Keeper of the Plains, Wichita, Kansas

 

On a recent road trip to Wichita, Kansas my husband and I made several visits to see the Keeper of the Plain sculpture. It is a really beautiful area. Standing at the confluence of the Arkansas and Little Arkansas rivers and adjacent to the Mid-America All-Indian Center is a 44-foot Cor-Ten steel sculpture by Kiowa-Comanche artist Blackbear Bosin.

These pits are known as the Rings of Fire and run in 15-minute increments starting around 7 pm during the winter, and at sunset during the summer.  It was too windy while we were there to see the Rings of Fire, but hopefully on a future trip we can see it.
