“Game On” – Bighorn Sheep Bronze Sculpture Bust
12″H x 12″W x 12″L – Edition of 48
The bighorn sheep is one of my favorite animals, but ironically, this is my first sculpture of one.
Michael and I hiked up a hill in southern Colorado where a small band was grazing. Three rams were
following a ewe, and the competition was keen. We watched one sideswipe an opponent, nearly knocking
him over a cliff… the rocks tumbled over the edge as he scrambled to safety.
I find their posturing during the rut intriguing, as their head-drop displays are directed at both
the ewes and rival males. For different reasons, of course!
