Artwork Description

Part of Indianapolis’ Eiteljorg Museum’s permanent collection, Buxton’s “Wilderness Inroads” astutely captures the allegory of the ever expanding European incursion into North America. While their deep approach into the territory was initially masked by the sound of the river’s rapids, their startling appearance has caught these Native Americans off-guard. Do they have the numbers to defend their land or do they give in to the increasing tide?
