ODESSA - There's a brand new sculpture on the University of Texas of the Permian Basin campus.
The statue is called "The Stragglers" and features a cowboy on a horse and five steers.
The statue is 70 feet long and about 13 feet tall.
We're told it's a tribute to the ranching way of life in West Texas.
The cost of the project was $400,000.
The city council funded more than half of the sculpture while donations made up the rest.
Officials say the official unveiling will next month.
