Richard Carpenter country artist with little money and lots of creativity, using his resources in the mountains of Idaho, created some incredible sculptures from pine tree needles and carvings from moose antlers. A couple of hundred thousand pine needles were gathered off the ground, sorted, washed, trimmed and hand woven .Over 8 months in making the life size bear. I know the artist would love to hear from you. Just to know where his art is being seen around the world. He said he would reply to every email and print every letter for his scrapbook.

The Artist, the Bear he calls "Mountain Magic~ A New Life"
Nothing goes to waste. The artist uses every little scrap material, as seen with this motorcycle below.It's under 2 1/2" in length. He used 17 different materials to make it. Some of the materials are Walrus Ivory, Ironwood, Water Buffalo horn, Moose Antler, Silver, rhinestones, shell, metal, plastic, rubber and more. The wheels and handle bars turn, too!
His work should be seen. If you agree, send this to all your friends. The End
