    George The older I get, the better I was.

    LOL I understand and that's admirable of which I respect you in saying it, but if you think posting pictures may be something everyone wouldn't appreciate, you should visit the Current Event category and see how a huge chunk of the website is wasted arguing with a couple Marxists.

    I am totally digging the two separate levels which adds depth to the whole piece. I haven't seen anything with different settings in one quite like that before. Great work. You can definitely see you invested a priceless amount of time and effort into the piece, it really paid off.

    Not really. It was my concept right from the start. I placed the forms in position early on so that the bear was lined up with the baby possum and bent sapling. The only tricky part was a weight issue. I knew the bear was going to be off center and throw the balance off. So I needed to be careful how and where the tree trunk base came up to counter the weight of it and the big rock etc.

    boarzhead God created man... Samuel Colt made them equal!

    The only words that come to my mind when seeing this is you made that bear look as beautiful as when it was alive. WOW what a great job. Oh yeah nice habitat. The whole thing is amazing.... Great job
