SYRI HALL THE TREESOME
26” x 13” x 7” — Bronze, ed. of 35 $10,500
Inspiration for this life-size bronze came easily. I spent countless hours as Artist-in-Residence at L'Auberge de Sedona through Goldenstein Gallery. This 3-D wall hanging of a mama Gray Squirrel sculpted life size is scampering down a tree to check on her three babies. They are surrounded by leaves of Sycamore and Oak with a Swallowtail Butterfly playfully watching the scene. Its location next to Oak Creek gave me countless opportunities to view these squirrels climbing up and down the trees where I had set up my sculpting materials. The way that they would climb down head first always amazed me. The three babies are sticking their heads out of their home while their mother has taken a protective stance as a Horned Toad is approaching.
