Elk Bronze  Wapiti
Donated by Tim Shinabarger. Tim is an award-winning American sculptor and painter internationally known for his portrayals of wildlife. Today, his works in bronze can be found in major museums and private collections, including the Autry National Center’s Museum of the American West in Los Angeles and the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Wyoming.

“Wapiti,” meaning white rump, is the Shawnee term for elk. It is a term that is still widely used today and adds a bit of romance to a truly regal animal. Once spread from ocean to ocean and border to border in the lower 48 states, they are once again being reestablished throughout much of their traditional range through the efforts of many devoted conservationists. It is really a tremendous success story in modern wildlife conservation. I have always had a special fondness for elk and love to use them as subject matter for my art. This is an edition of 100 and this bronze is #95.
