Frontier Marshal


For the commemoration of the Bicentennial of the Marshals Service, a larger-than-life bronze sculpture, titled "Frontier Marshal" was donated to the Marshals Service by John Bianchi, a member of the original U.S. Marshals foundation Board of Directors and founder of Bianchi International, a holster and sporting equipment manufacturer.

Frontier Marshal

The frontier era in which the Marshals Service gained such renown occurred in about the halfway point of our 200 plus year history. The sculpture thus seems a fitting symbol of the dedication of Marshals and their Deputies during those two centuries, and reminds us of the self-sacrifice and dangers so often associated with upholding the law.

The 10-foot tall work of art was created by Dave Manuel of Joseph, Oregon, a widely acclaimed painter and sculptor of western themes. The bronze portrays a confident, dignified Marshal: in one hand, he holds a 10 gallon hat and what appear to be court papers; the other hand rests on his gun belt; and the long duster coat is pulled back just far enough to reveal the pistol in the holster on the gun belt.
