When I was first presented with the commission to sculpt a bear and a bull in relationship to the stock market I wasn’t overly thrilled. There were so many typical approaches to this kind of piece. After weeks of just loosely carrying the concept in my head, I finally received this vision. The stock market is like a yo-yo, going up and down, controlled by seemingly mysterious and somewhat precarious forces. For those of you who are not financially savvy (like myself), the bull means that the market place is strong and the bear means the market place is struggling. I love how this piece turned out!
