Moose on the Loose

Michael Legatt
Materials: Wood – Willow and Ironwood
Selling Price: $10,000

Artist Statement:

While out walking through willows–Mother Nature inspired me to sculpt a moose. I could see how each willow piece–bent just right–would form a part of the body. Walking on high ground, I saw ironwood trees and I saw how they would make the skeleton of the moose. After hundreds of willow pieces, thousands of pin nails–plus one in my finger–and many coats of Linseed Oil finish, it was finished.
