Born from the 19th Century American West, Cowboy mythology embodies the ancient, archetypical hero's journey: the tale of a reluctant frontier warrior who, despite the odds, heeds the call to carve his future with bare, callused hands.
He is romanticized and idealized by those who crave freedom but are unable or unwilling to undertake the fierce struggle required to secure it.
The Wild West has vanished but Cowboy attitude persists in the chaos streets, opulent penthouses, and rural outbacks of America. Today's Cowboy stills live close to the ground, clawing at the edge of civilization, evoking an ancient spirit that connects us to a shared past and possibilities for the future.
