He Who Saved The Deer - Deer Detail
Sculpture - Bronze
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS SCULPTURE? IT WAS STOLEN FROM THE SENIOR FAMILY CABIN IN 1985. If you have seen it, or if you purchased it, please report it to law enforcement or to the artist. This is a detail from a large sculpture that has special meaning for our family because my late father, Willoughby, and I created it together not long before he passed away in 1984. We came up with the concept for this sculpture in the course of discussing our experiences in the wild country around our family cabin,and among the Navajo, Hopi, Shoshoni, Arapaho and Lakota. tribes of the American West, We worked on crafting the original from clay and granite, and took it through the entire casting process together, which took us over many an icy and remote Wyoming road during the winter. My father passed away not long after we completed the sculpture, and the year after, in 1985, it was stolen, along with another of my bronzes, "Wild and Free," from our family cabin. My mom, brother and sister and I were heartbroken, especially since I'd made many changes in the wax so we didn't have molds of the finished design. In other words, this was a one-of-a-kind sculpture and I couldn't cast another. If you see it, or any portion of it (I'll post details here) please take action to return it to my family and me!
