By focusing on subject matter that is close to his heart, Joe Slockbower is able to instill an intangible quality to his work that would otherwise be impossible to capture. This sculpture, entitled Bear Hug, is no exception. Slockbower has captured the essence of a mother bear's love for her cubs in this heartwarming piece. Signed and numbered #975/2500, this piece is certified as a Mill Creek Studios original, copyright 2002. At nearly 25 lbs and 18" tall, the sculpture is accented by a simulated onyx and walnut base. This would make an incredible addition to the art collection of anyone who appreciates the outdoors.
