My newest bear sculpture, which will be a companion piece to Orion and have the Night sky patina. Ursa Major and Minor, the big and little dipper, is the first star constellation many of us learned about. Represented by the big and little bear, they remain forever together I the night sky looking down upon us. I have translated this star constellation into a momma bear holding her cub. On their backs are raised stars forming the constellations in polished bronze while the stars and night sky appear on their bodies. They are forever together in this sculpture. The most important part of this sculpture is the hand of the baby on the mothers back. Ripples or waves can be seen radiating form the baby's hand onto the mothers back. This is the most important message that children will forever radiate through our lives, always with us and in our hearts.
