    That is an amazing all around piece. The best thing will be seeing the customers face when they see it for the first time. Great job!
  2. That is a fantastic piece....and the habitat is outstanding (tree stump is amazing) and it all works very well together.

    LordRusty If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.


    Utterly fantastic! True Museum Quality ... but then again, what should one expect from a Museum Man? Love the expression, eye roll, and the naturally mottled color of the lips and mouth, not to mention the Bears great looking nose! Great alteration! And what can I say about that stump? I'm speechless ... at a loss for words ... and for me that saying A LOT! ;) ;D Right there in this mount is the result of knowing ones subject, using references, and taking the time to create such a piece as this! Totally "WOW" and his feet are planted squarely on the ground! It is so nice to see someone more concerned with the tradition of this field rather than what's current! Right-on!

  5. How much time is in the entire piece?

    doesn't get much better than that !! I love the stump!! I can only imagine the time you have in that piece alone very impressive !!

    tomdes Me my dear and Fall BAZZ!!!

    Both pieces are fantastic George, you have to equally compliment the habitat because its as good as the mount itself (and probably took just as long, if not more)

    That bear is awesome but the habitat takes the cake. Looks truly real

    Very nice, but I saw that very first picture with the bucket under the bear's backside and thought, "surely someone isn't going to make the old expression about what a bear does in the woods into a mount!". :eek:

    Beautiful mount and that stump is unreal! Awesome, awesome job!

  14. I really appreciate the kind words, on behalf of my staff and I we thank you! We love doing these pieces, the challenge is always fun and getting to share it makes it all worth while.

    Some wanted to know about the time......about 5 weeks total.

    Thanks again,

    PS. Museum man John??? Lol, I don't know, we work for a lot of museums but those are some mighty big shoes to fill! I don't think they could ever be filled.
  15. WOW! I wish , I wish , I wish I could make a stump like that LOL! Great job!

    X2 Unbeieveable detail. And the habitat is stuning. Looks like you went out and cut a chunk of the earth and placed it on the base. :eek:

    The highlight of that piece for me is your stump and base work. I make all my habitat as well. Congrats on a nice piece!
