“The Cowboy’s National Sculptor” who modeled wildlife, men of American history, rodeo and Blackfoot, was born in Browning, Montana (in the heart of the Blackfoot Indian Reservation) in 1914. Highly educated and both musically and artistically gifted, Scriver began sculpting using taxidermy to learn his craft of making wildlife bronzes. By 1962 he became a charter member of the Society of Animal Artists, had been accepted into the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America, listed in Who’s Who in American Art, and a member of the National Sculpture Society, and the National Academy of Western Art. His commissions have included a statue of Charlie Russell, a piece for the Cowboy Hall of Fame, and several works of Lewis and Clark. He was instrumental in developing the Museum of Montana Wildlife in Browning and a unique casting process used in his own Bighorn Foundry. Bob Scriver remained in Browning until his death in 1999.
