The Orphans; The American Black Bear reaches five feet long and weighs from 200 to 500 lbs. More of a climber than the grizzly bear, it's natural habitat is in woodlands. They mate every two years and usually have two cubs. The cub stay with the mother for two years. She chases them up a tree and then takes off and leaves them there.
I created this piece the year of the fire that destroyed a lot of the Yellow Stone Park and left orphan bears. They truly look like orphans waiting for mom.


  1. Oh, my...this is such a beautiful, poignant sculpture. It touches my heart.

  2. Wow! Such detail. They look like you just want to go up and pet them or maybe run the other way cuz, Mom might be just around the corner. You are an amazingly talented sculptor. I'm so thankful I came to visit. You are an amazing woman. Blessings to you and yours. Love and Light, Nina P
