The very lifeblood of the desert is water. We who have been born of the rugged people who settled the desert of Southern Utah, have generations of memories of leaving a warm bed in the middle of the night, lighting a lantern, and going out into the darkness to take a watering turn. This bronze sculpture represents the men and women who by their hard work irrigated the West and provided us with a rose in the desert. This piece is a collaboration between Annette Everett and L'Deane Trueblood, sculptor.
