#239 Remarque: "Monarch of the Boreal"

Monarch of the Boreal is an early work of one of my favorite subjects - the moose.  Unlike most deer species,
moose are solitary animals and do not form herds.  I've experienced the critter many times in my adventures afield.

The odd looking, banjo-nosed animal has distinctive characteristics and presents a unique design source for the sculptor.  Although my style has changed since I modeled this sculpture, the study continues to be among my
favorite works.  It is in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, Wyoming.
