Relief - Cast Glass
This piece is cast glass, two colors, and is taken from the original which was cast in cast iron in a sand mold. It depicts my beloved burro, BJ, who is no longer with us, except in spirit and in this depiction. My favorite story is that I often took him out to graze on the ranch, dragging him along as his huge neck bend down so powerfully to grab grass and weeds on the way, and I was often frustrated as I had other things to do than stand there all day with him, watching him eat, so I often was at my wit's end over this situation. One day after many years of this, I decided to try something else out, so I slung the soft braided lead rope over his back and walked down towards where I wanted to tie him him and , to my amazement, he galloped over to me as soon as I was out of sight or quite far away and stood there to have the hasp put on him! Now, of course, there is a lesson here, no? That same rope is depicted in this sculpture.
