Grizzly, Is That My Daddy??? 4/25/2016

There is a name change under consideration for “Standing Bear”. The bear was leaning forward (by design) to get some action into the sculpture. The issue is that there was too much stress on the armature structure so I added some support under the bear in the form of the two cubs.

Grizzly Is That My Daddy

The cubs are attached to the belly of the bear, and help to relieve the stress on the upright animal. (Stress cracks were appearing on the back of upright animal.)

Considering the relationship that many male grizzlies have with their cubs, and how the mother bears deal with it, maybe “Is That My Daddy???” would be a better title for this sculpture.

If you have suggestions for a “Name-change” let me know.
