Paul Manship created Indian Hunter as a companion piece to a sculpture of an antelope. The hunter's tense pose and focused expression suggest that he has just fired an arrow at the animal. Viewing the two sculptures together, it is easy to imagine the arrow flying through the space between the hunter's bow and the antelope's side.
