Description
Ed Mell is one of Arizona 's premier artists. Jack Knife was his first large-scale sculpture. The bronze stands over eight feet high on its base and is modeled after Scottsdale 's official City seal, a rider astride a bucking horse.  "Jack Knife has a reverence for the Old West. It is not traditional, but yet it has a traditional  theme. The angularity accelerates the power and energy of the rider and horse, more than accurate depiction." –Ed Mell
