Gustavo had been searching for inspiration for this sculpture for two years, when driving through a small town he noticed an old barn that made him stop to take a closer look. Near the barn were some very heavy weights and a young boy attempting to pick them up. His original plan for the sculpture was going to be the boy attempting to lift the weights, but that evolved into the father of the boy, The Cowboy, attempting to lift the weights, and his son, seeing him struggle, helping him not fall over. The Cowboy inspiration came from the ranch where the barn was located. Gustavo says none of his artwork ends up being what he was originally planning, but that’s what makes each piece so special.
