David Farnham Bears with Fish
David Farnham is a carver of the Onandaga tribe, one of the Iroquois Six Nations in Canada.
The two bears are carved from an unusual material: bison bone. The porous part of the bone invites a nice contrast with the more solid, polished part, both in terms of texture and color. All and all, it is a wonderful composition.
The fish is carved from antler. All are mounted on a wood base.
Base is 5 in. long x 2 1/8 in. wide x 9/16 high.
Bear 1 is 2 1/4 in. long x 1 1/4 in. high x 7/8 in. wide; bear 2 is 2 1/4 in. long x 1 1/2 in. high x 1 in. high.
