OUT OF THE WOODS a pine needle bear

Richard Carpenter's avatar Richard Carpenter

Hand woven Pine Needle Bear. In Progress. A few hundred thousand needles were sorted, washed and woven to create this bear. All features are carved from wood. as in the Eyes, Nose, Mouth, Claws, and Paws. He has a wired structured frame. For the most part he is hollow and has paper items inside like a picture , current news, bumber sticker , prayers & wishes etc. A sort of time capsual. This Bears stands just under 8 feet tall and I currentlly have 7 months work in him. In the history of art, I don't believe this form of art has ever been done.
