On June 19, 1983 the 10 foot tall sculpture "Promise of the Prairie" was dedicated in the Lundeen's hometown of Holdrege, Nebraska. This sculpture was created for Holdrege's centennial celebration. George designed this sculpture of a pioneer family to represent the hardy and determined souls who settled the Great Plains.
Although this sculpture has been out of production for quite some time now, we did manage to reacquire a smaller (36") version of this sculpture recently. It is currently available for sale in our gallery and we can ship anywhere. ... See MoreSee Less
My inlaws Bruce and Margaret Hilsabeck gave is one of these! I was there for the dedication of the one in North Park and also for your Lewis and Clark ones in downtown Lincoln. You all are so talented!
I stopped during our walk to admire the sculpture this summer with my grandkids and tell them the story. Beautiful!
I have one of the promotional replicas proudly displayed in my home. It's a wonderful reminder of my youth, my family, and Holdrege.
I usually visit the park and drive by the statue whenever I'm home. Beautiful!
Holdrege is my hometown & it is Amazing.
I proposed to Miss Kelli Graff at the base of your sculpture in 2001. 💍🌪
You rock George!
No fair posting photos from 35+ years ago ........ we all had hair back then !!!
