Mark carved this 7-foot waving brown bear for Adobe and Stars Inn Bed & Breakfast in Taos, New Mexico. The inn owner wanted a large, happy, welcoming bear to place in front of her B&B and be visible from the road. This bear has definitely attracted attention as people routinely stop their cars to get out and pose with him for photos.
Here is the bear at our place, before shipping him to New Mexico.
And here are a few pictures of the bear in progress.
He gets to relax a bit while waiting to be shipped to New Mexico.
