It’s Mine!

Bruce Morness
Wisconsin
Materials: Steel

ISG
Selling Price: $25,000

Artist Statement:

It’s Mine! is a metaphor for the challenges we all face in our lives. The sculptures represents a timber wolf protecting the snowshoe hare it has just preyed upon. Many competitors in the wild steal prey from those unwilling or unable to prevent the theft. One must be fierce to secure the sustenance earned from the hunt.
