"He teaches his students to appreciate art and what they find in nature, he said. And to not waste anything. His exhibit is a model of this philosophy. There's the wooden banister he found that he carved into a mother and a child. There's a dead rat he found and encaged it in a frame with barbed wire. There's old fish fossils. His style can't be pegged down because it's always changing. He's always experimenting. There's no pattern to his artwork - well, except for one, maybe. The appearance of Ukrainian images." -Rachel Roubein, Carrol County Times, October 20, 2012.

Some very small scuffs, light scratches and verdigris to bronze; overall good estate condition.
