Trading Post Times

Sculptor Mark Fischer’s signature piece,

Ancient Dignity,

attracts hundreds of

shutterbugs taking his picture, and visitors

just giving him a pat on the back as he

stands outside of

River Trading Post

,

Scottsdale.

This life size bison contains nearly a mile

of copper wire and over 30,000 individual

welds. He weighs in at 1200 pounds.

Without question,

Ancient Dignity

gains

the respect and attention from hundreds of

visitors, including four-year old, Vivian

Wall.

Vivian, who is the grand-daughter of

sculptor Cliff Fragua, adopted

Ancient

Dignity

as her own pet, even giving it a

new name:

Buffy

.

Until Vivian came along, no one dared try

to tame the beast. But at four years old,

Vivian hopped onto his back and

Buffy

became Vivian’s new BFF.

Fifty pound Vivian gently took command

of twelve hundred pound

Buffy

amid

cheers and applause from the many

gathered around.

Whether you are four years old or seventy

-four years old,

River Trading Post

in

Scottsdale always holds something special

in store for every one of our visitors.

Maybe the reason we’re the favorite

American Indian spot in the Phoenix area.
