The Spirit of the River’s statues have left the studio, but artist, R.T. “Skip” Wallen has not. While the statues are being cast in bronze, Wallen is busy in the studio sculpting a mama Black Bear and her two cubs jaunting atop a fallen log.
The Spirit of the Rivers, a 13ft. tall sculpture of three Native Americans portaging a birch bark canoe, is expected to be completely cast in bronze by the spring of 2018. The actual dedication of this unique and beautiful monument will take place in the fall of 2018.
Looks like a few Coachmen members came in for a peek a bit early. Hope you don't mind!
