Bronze Africa ‘Mongolian Argali’
I found myself in unknown territory when I took on the sculpting of the Mongolian Argali. When doing animals that are not familiar to me I find myself trying to come to terms with the incredibly harsh environment in which they live.
I think finally that the sculptures are tempered by the realization that in effect the African creatures I sculpt have an easy time compared to these animals that live so far from the warmth of the tropical sun. Here then is the Argali as I depict him with his massive coat of quills and in admiration of his ability to live in harsh terrain at high altitudes.
