Dennis M. Wilson, known for his standing bear staffs (among other things), doesn’t usually sell or provide any roughouts. However, when I was first getting back into sculpting and carving, I happened to visit him and, after demonstrating how he uses an angle grinder to rough out the bears at the top of his staffs, he was kind enough to give me the roughout to work on, while I tried out some new knives.
This Standing Bear is filled with curiosity. He’s standing tall and straining to see as far in the distance as he possibly can. It’s hard to tell what has caught his attention—another bear, some humans with guns, or maybe a campsite left unattended? He won’t stand here for long though!
