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.
