Photos: Richard Carpenter
xoxoxoBruce, a regular at the Cellar Image of the Day forum, posted a series of fascinating photos of this pine needle bear sculpture by Richard Carpenter. The pine needles were gathered off the ground, sorted, washed, trimmed, and hand woven over the period of 8 months to make a life-sized bear.

Your bears are totally awesome,do you sell them? If so, how can I purchase one. You have an amazing talent. I collect bears and would love to have one of these for my collection.
Keep up the great work and let your creative juices keep flowing. Bye the way Thomas is wrong about bears being dastardly etc. We encroach on their territory and burn down their habitate, not the other way around.
They are not a threat to our way of life, we are a threat to them. Anyway, Richard they are wonderful. Thanks for the treat of seeing exceptional artistry.
