Museum of Natural History, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR
1987 • Copper/patina, 4.5' x 4' x 3'
Three of a series of 12 gargoyles I created for the University of Oregon Sciences complex.
The Museum of Natural History, which has a large collection of NW Native American artifacts, has three entry gates, each with its own totem animal, Raven, Bear and Salmon (below).
All are constructed of hammered copper, and each has the Native American mask of the creature it represents incorporated into the sculpture.
Bear is 5.5' x 4' x 4' and Salmon is 8.5' x 5.5' x 3'
