Alaska Wildlife Sculptor Frank Entsminger is donating his limited-edition bronze “Full Tilt” collection. This is a true rendition of predator and prey which depicts two wolves in hot pursuit of a bull caribou.

A New Twist: Frank Entsminger has generously offered to allow the winning bidder the opportunity to apply the full donation value to any other piece of his currently available work if they prefer a different piece.

After the fall rut when caribou bulls are worn out from fighting, they are particularly vulnerable to predation. Northern grey wolves are just out for survival, doing what wolves do to perpetuate the species. Sometime ago Frank sculpted “Spooked” [a running bull moose]. Frank promised his art enthusiasts he would sculpt some wolves pursuing the moose. “Airborne” & “Land ‘n Snap” were completed.

The pair of wolves that accompany “Spooked” are an edition of 26 (12 remaining). “Full Tilt” and the wolves are sold together or separately; with an edition of 36. Size: 24” long, 20” high, 18” wide.

About the Sculptor: Frank moved to Alaska in 1962, initially working as a taxidermist until fate changed his life when he lost his home to fire. His hands were severely burnt. During his healing in 1976, he continued sculpting wildlife miniatures for ideas of life-size mounts that later turned him to casting his work into bronze limited editions. He has 16 Sold Out editions and another 12 available editions. He has lived in rural Alaska over 40 years south of Tok near the Indian village of Mentasta. Here he continues his sculpting in his studio where he also has a huge collection of bird mounts from all over Alaska and Asia.

We are honored that Frank has chosen to exhibit at our Banquet and we thank him for his donation.
