"FREEDOM" monument sculpture with Stefan Savides and Garland Weeks.
These two outstanding artists have worked together to create a bronze that will commemorate the Klamath, Modoc and Yahooskin tribes of the Klamath area. This will be the first of its kind and has already encouraged a link of communication of the tribes with the museum. The sculpture depics a tribal elder assisting in a youth's rite of passage ceremony which involves retrieving an eagle tail feather from a live mature eagle. He and a young boy hide in a hole in the ground and use a live rabbit which they hold at the top of the hole to attract the eagle. When the eagle grabs the rabbit, they grab the eagle and snatch the tail feather, letting the eagle and the rabbit go free. The sculpture is rightly named, "FREEDOM".
Having known each other for years, Stefan invited Garland to do this project together. Garland sculpting the figure and Stefan the eagle and lave rock. The sculpture was placed at the museum near the entrance on the weekend of the opening of their annual fine art show. the Favell Museum is located downtown Klamath Falls, Oregon, at 125 West Main Street.
