With all the stress of preparing for our biggest show of the year, the Loveland Sculpture Invitational, which starts Friday, it was good to get a few pictures of my bronze elk sculpture finally complete and on it's way. "Mountain Monarch" was a commission from a client, but will be released as a small edition. It will premiere at the above mentioned show, assuming it ships and gets here from the foundry without hassle. I'm excited to finally see it in person and finished. Please review some of the experiences I had with elk to create this sculpture.
