sculpture depicts a familiar activity of my early
childhood -- 1930's and 40's. The sculpture is
half-size and the metal 1/4 inch think.
Before we would get in the tank, we would try to
skim what we called "algae" from the water that was
next to the side of the tank. Today that seems
very unsanitary, but it didn't bother us then.
Once we got in the water we would try to keep the
cattle from drinking by splashing.
side note that didn't have anything to do with us:
the town kids were not swimming in their municipal
pools because of the polio scare.
that as it may, here is an old memory in steel.
