Abstract expressionistic redwood sculpture composed of a unique combination of polished root and burl components that are suggestive of a peculiar wolf figure. A sinuous torso form supports rugged a wolf-like head that appears to be partially eroded and contorted on one side while the opposite side is more realistic with a profound eye and snout. The arched torso with three prominently sculptured appendages rises dramatically from a gnarled burl wood configuration with polished highlighted protrusions.
This intriguing Redwood sculpture has been composed with several redwood roots and burls that have been carved with chain saws, shaped with grinders and hand crafted to further enhance the natural forms. After final preparation, the wood designs are assembled with multiple steel rods. The redwood components have been sanded and sprayed with a durable clear oil and hand rubbed, producing a matte finish which reveals all the natural colors and exotic grain patterns. Due to the nature of redwood burls, each sculpture is one of a kind and cannot be duplicated. Although it is possible to create similar designs. All of the natural redwood used to create these sculptures has been reclaimed from the underground portions of fallen trees which have been victimized from winter storms, landslides or forest fires, therefor no living trees have been utilized.
All sculptures are signed and numbered by Daryl Stokes and include an artist certificate of authenticity.
