"New Territory" is local artist, Cha' Tullis' depiction of years past as a party of Indians top a hill to find a valley with fresh running water; a perfect place to camp and rest. Made of 1/4" sheet steel, pipe and sucker rods, the sculptured scene is a fitting addition to Hominy, City of Murals. Fifteen figures weighing from 1200 to 2000 lbs each are set in cement. The tallest is 19 1/2 feet; the shortest is 16 feet. Tullis has painted murals on exterior walls of the city and placed sculptured figures on a hill top, thus giving his art as a gift for the world to enjoy.
