Sometimes even the smallest details and creations bear the important meaning and representation of a culture. This is the case of the cowboy hat that created by John B. Stetson, represented the American culture during the 20th century being one of the few things that made American cowboys internationally known. If an Asian saw someone wearing a cowboy hat, they would assume that the guy was a cowboy from the American Wild West. That was the impact of the Cowboy Hat to American Culture. The cowboy hat also gave rise to the popularity of the cowboy locally, invoking the beginning of an American culture full of cowboy lifestyles, which could be considered the Knight of the Wild West. Even after so many years the yearning such object bers meaning to the children that associate the hat with braveness and the adults that don’t only use it for practical motives but because it represents who they are and were. As America changes, and as our ideas and culture go through transformation, the cowboy hat will remain to be a center of the American culture. When I decided to plant the garden I thought of the only place in which a reasonable amount of people would walk to and stare at the sign and garden. This was near what used to be my old high school as I knew dozens of students would walk up with interest to the sign and the newly planted garden to know more about the person is dedicated to.
