The Texan has historically & culturally been the Zeitgeist of US cultural stereotype. The love of Guns, Cowboys & Country Music is well known but the right to carry a handgun can be easily revoked, and, to keep handguns out of the hands of the less wealthy, there’s a costly licensing procedure is employed.  So legally carrying a gun in Texas is the privilege of the economically fortunate. The Banker refers to this financial privilege, which you would also need to be in order to own this artwork!

Traditionalism is reflected in the love for God, fatherland, and family and the patriarchal importance of work in the male self-identity. Interestingly in the US presidential elections, what happens in Texas can swing the Democratic or Republican race to the Whitehouse.
