“Cliff Hanger” is Alaskan Artist Frank Entsminger’s fifth Dall’s/Stone’s sheep sculpture and the first to depict a magnificent northern sheep ram laying down. Frank’s previous four Dall’s/Stone’s sheep bronze pieces where editions of 26 which have all sold out therefore bringing the idea for a new sheep bronze. Frank’s love of the mountains, mountains hunting, & Dall’s sheep is another of his inspirations for this new piece. Frank used numerous photos of some of the largest rams taken to inspire the horn style.
Frank has donated “Cliff Hanger” in a stone patina to National Wild Sheep Foundation Convention January 11-16, 2021. WSF is holding the convention virtual and all auctions are on line. Bidding already online. Link: https://bid.wildsheepfoundation.org/CLIFF-HANGER-AN-ORIGINAL-BRONZE_i39413681
From the artist, “Wild sheep has been a life-long passion of mine. This latest sculpture called “Cliff Hanger” is the product of intertwining 59 years of my life with theirs. This is the fifth sculpture that I have completed of these thin horn northern wild sheep. “Cliff Hanger” is a dream ram in the minds of sheep lovers. The biggest of the big. Hope you enjoy!” This investment quality bronze is mounted on a beautiful dark walnut base with lazy Susan mounted in the bottom so it can swivel to be viewed from all angles of your trophy room, office, or den.
