   TAKEN FOR GRANTED are the things we most appreciate and enjoy:

The Song Birds cheering the early morning risers;
The majesty of the Bull Moose and the Blue Whale;
The serenity of the Bald Eagle circling high overhead;
The hunting cry of the Timber Wolf and the Coyote; The cunning of the Fox;
The lordship of the Grizzly Bear;
The kinship between Man and the Dolphin on the high seas;
The beauty Nature blesses us with, every day of our lives;

   What if - tomorrow, THEY WERE GONE?


   It is my hope that my sculpture will arouse in you an awareness of the beauty of our Heritage and why we must preserve it for the future generations. Our Creator bestowed upon every one of us the custodianship of this wondrous Planet and all its creatures. Greed and fear are Man's greatest faults, and Nature's greatest enemies. I quote a very wise First Nations Chief,

   Chief Dan George:

   If you talk to the animals they will talk with you
   and you will know each other.
   If you do not talk to them you will not know them,
   and what you do not know you will fear.
   What one fears one destroys.
