The Driskill Hotel was one of the contributors to our Travel Swag Bag 2.0 for the SXSWi travel blogging panel. They have the most distinctively Texas-style bar in town.
This bronze was commissioned for the bar and depicts a runaway horse with a cowboy's foot caught in the stirrup - the options are to shoot the runaway or have the cowboy be dragged to his death.
