Major Works by Tom Neary - Pg. 2.

CRUCIFIED CHRIST
"CROSS ON THE PRAIRIE"

The sculpture, commissioned by Pete and Mary Ellen Naaden, is located on their ranch one mile west of Braddock, ND.

The Cross on the Prairie sculpture is over 19' tall and 10' across. The Christ figure itself stands 7.5' tall, and is built using 304 stainless steel sheer strips. The sculpture was then sand-blasted to take away the shine and grinder marks.

Over 300 lbs. of 308 stainless welding wire was used. The cross is made with 4 x 8 steel tubing that is allowed to rust.

BISON COOP 
NEW ROCKFORD, ND

This massive steel sign at the entrance to the North American Bison Cooperative has the face of a buffalo on a 7' diameter Indian Warrior's shield.

The buffalo's face was meant to appear as though it was done in Native American bead work, so about 3,000 one-inch square pieces of steel and stainless steel were cut and welded into place.

THE BROKEN LANCE

The Broken Lance was created in memory of a friend of Toms: Gary McMillan of Fordville, ND, who was murdered in 1989.

Completed in 1991, this sculpture is 14' tall, and is located in University Park at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks.

Native American history tells: "When a Native American warrior would die, his lance would be broken to release the spirit of the lance to follow its owner's spirit."
