Bison bison is pictured as it was being loaded for its trip to the foundry.  Clayton completed the life size sculpture this week and parked the pick-up truck at a level below the sculpture.  He then loaded the buffalo using supported boards as a ramp, a come-along to ratchet it aboard and a lot of slow maneuvering.  The buffalo sculpture is now in the process of becoming a wax sculpture which Clayton will check before it is dismantled and dipped into liquid porcelain for the final stage of pouring the molten bronze.  For more about the lost wax casting, please check The Process under the Sculpture tab.
