The statue at the entrance to McNeese St University in Lake Charles, LA.  The statue, titled “An Honest Day’s Work,” was designed by Fred Fellows of Sonoita, Ariz. He is known for Western figure-genre paintings and sculpture that commemorate cowboy life.  The sculpture, which depicts an 1870-to-1880s-period cowboy, was selected because it resembled the university’s logo. It stands 11 feet tall without the base and is 9 feet 6 inches long and 7 feet wide. It weighs about 2,800 pounds.
