Long Description:

The sculpture is a gift to the state of Massachusetts by the sculptor, Peter Toth, as part of his "Trail of the Whispering Giants" tribute to Native Americans. The "Trail of the Whispering Giants" is the artist's plan to give a sculpture of a Native American to every state in the country.

Enisketomp is the 45th of such tributes created by the artist. The sculpture was carved from a 200 year old red oak log taken from October Mountain in the Berkshires.

The name Enisketomp is the Native-American word for human being.
