Artist Bob Boze Bell gestures to a crowd of about 200 people at the unveiling of the 10-foot-tall centennial sculpture, "Not-So-Gentle Tamer," at the Prescott Valley Civic Center.

The statue is based on a painting by Bell that was raffled off at Prescott Valley's Centennial Gala in 2012. Artist Deb Gessner worked with Bell to turn the painting into the sculpture, which was then poured by the Bronzesmith foundry.

Prescott Valley Vice Mayor Lora Lee Nye, who with the Centennial Gala committee commissioned the painting by Bell, said she was thrilled to see the women of the West get some recognition.

"Men won the West," she said, "but women tamed it."
