Once again, Sal took my breath away with the spirit of these animals. If the animals are in the stone, Sal helps to bring them out! He certainly doesn’t hold back when inspired and he doesn’t refer to books or past carvers. Sal’s style gives the animal respect and representation as he understands it from reading the stone. This is an older carving that I have had awhile. I was instantly charmed and still am. This Bear measures about 3 3/4" long by 2 1/2" tall. The bird is 1" long by 7/8" wide and rubbed w/ red ochre.
