Description

Bronze sculpture of Adriano Moraes riding the bull Little Yellow Jacket (name on tag). The foot is the seal of the Headquarters of Professional Bull Riders, Inc.

Signature

Annotation

In 2006 the PBR built a new headquarters, and put to a fan vote which bull rider should grace the massive statue at its entrance. So now Moraes sits immortalized in bronze upon Little Yellow Jacket, head down, right arm straight.
