This Alaskan Dall Sheep bronze was inspired by a piece commissioned by Alaska Wild Sheep Foundation  (AK WSF) for use as the Charles A. Sheldon Award for Lifetime Achievement in Wild Sheep Conservation in Alaska. Under agreement with AK WSF, Frank was authorized to sell additional pieces with different horns, as to keep their piece a one of a kind. Their bronze is modeled after a record book muzzle loader ram taken by the late Bob Hodson. This bronze is modeled after a ram Frank took in 1988, with a tight curl, and is available in a patina of your choice.

For each sculpture purchased directly from the artist, Frank will donate $1000 to AK WSF.

More Information, contact artist Frank Entsminger.
