Artist's Statement
" "
TAKEN FOR GRANTED are the things we most appreciate and enjoy;
    The Song Birds cheering the early morning risers;
    The majesty of the Bull Moose and the Blue Whale;
    The serenity of the Bald Eagle circling high overhead;
    The hunting cry of the Timber Wolf and the Coyote;
    The cunning of the Fox;
    The lordship of the Grizzly Bear;
    The kinship between Man and the Dolphin at sea;
    The beauty Nature blesses us with, every day.
What if - tomorrow, THEY WERE GONE?
    It is my hope that my sculptures will arouse in you
an awareness of the beauty of our Heritage and why we
must preserve it for the future generations. Our Creator
bestowed upon every one of us the custodianship of this
wondrous Planet and all its creatures. Greed and fear
are Man's greatest faults, and Nature's greatest enemies.

CLASS: Sculpture
CATEGORY: People
MEDIA: Perypholite(Wonderstone)
SIZE: H-14, W-10, D-10, Wt-68 lbs.
YEAR: 1999
Description
Original, One of a Kind sculpture. Sitting Bull was born in 1831 at Grand River, South Dakota, the only son of a Hunk-Papa Sioux warrior called Returns-Again, a mystic, who on occasion, was said, could communicater with animals. As an adolescent, he became aware, like his father, of special ties to the spirit world. While taking a rest during a hunting foray, he dreamed that a grizzly bear was poised over him and that a bird nearby was urging him to play dead. Opening his eyes and discovering that the bear and bird were real, he followed the dream's advice and froze. The grizzly, after sniffing him, wandered away.
At age 25 Sitting Bull became leader of the Strong Hearts, the Sioux's elite Military Society. In his mid thirties he was designated a Medicine Man and Chief of the Sioux people by virtue of his skill as a negotiator and his ability as an orator.
Sitting Bull did not take part in Custer"s defeat at the Little Big Horn on the 25th of June, 1876, that fateful day he was in the hills praying to his Creator for help to defeat his enemy. Two days after the battle 4000 of the Sioux people escaped north to take refuge in Canada, near the Cypress Hills.       When roaming the hills as a boy, I could still imagine his presence.
The Buffalo emerging from all sides of the sculpture represent the provider of all things to maintain their Native way of life. Story tellers put it this way: "The buffalo came from the center of the earth through a hole the Creator opened to release them. Coyote, the Trickster, saw his chance to create some havoc. By drawing the Creator's attention away from the hole with a fake emergency he would forget to close it, allowing millions of buffalo to escape. To punish the people for not protecting their land from the distruction of the white intruder, the Creator sent the buffalo back down the hole to the center of the earth to where they came from."

Snow Leapard Mother keeping it's young one close and safe.
Sculpted from one piece of white and black Alabaster on a gray granite base.
The sculpture depicts a mother snow leopard holding her young one safe.

They are an endangered species due to the high demand for their coats,
snow leopards are illegally hunted for the fur trade. The pelts are a sought-after
commodity in places like Central Asia, Eastern Europe and Russia where they
are turned into coats and other garments. Snow leopard bones and body parts
are also used for traditional Asian medicine. As humans expand their farm and
grazing areas for livestock herds they are encroaching more into the snow
leopards territories resulting in increased conflict with humans when
snow leopards attack livestock during times when their natural prey is scarce.
