An organic abstract bronze sculpture inspired by a fragment of mammoth pelvic bone and the primordial moonrise.
- Available in Limited Edition
- Bronze on black walnut base
- Perfect for professional and armchair paleontologists alike.
When we were young and growing up in Fairbanks, AK, we collected prehistoric bones along the banks of Gold Stream in the valley behind our house.
The inspiration for this small bronze sculpture came from a fragment of a mammoth pelvic bone found elsewhere in Alaska. It may have come from an old Otto Geist "bone pile" behind our elementary school.
With the addition of an alabaster orb, it recalls the primordial memories of a pale moon rising across the mouth of a cave. It could make a good monumental sculpture as well.
Bronze is 5.5” H, 10.6″ H on walnut base.
Edition of 120
