DONATION: This bronze created by world famous artist Frank Entsminger was commissioned by the Alaska Wild Sheep Foundation for use as the Charles A Sheldon Award for lifetime achievement in wild sheep conservation in Alaska. The original bronze is a full body Dall’s sheep modeled after a record book ram taken by the late Bob Hodson with his muzzle loader. There are 2 recipients since its inception 2018, Bob Hodson & Urban Rahoi who each received a bronze ram bust sculpted by Frank. Charles A. Sheldon was a self-made businessman, philanthropist, and hunter-conservationist famous for his explorations in the northwest wildness. He was a member of the Boone and Crockett Club with many influential friends in Washington DC. He was able to move a bill through congress to create Denali National Park largely focused on the conservation of Dall’s sheep. Sheldon personally delivered that bill for signing to President Woodrow Wilson on February 16, 1917.
Under agreement with AK WSF, Frank is authorized to sell or donate a limited number of the bronzes. Frank also sculpted a second large ram with a heavy tight curl. The piece is available for sale with either set of horns. For each sculpture purchased directly from the artist he will donate $1,000 to AK WSF. This donated bronze depicts the heavy tight curl ram with a fannin patina. The bronze comes on a 4 ½ inches high 2-tiered walnut base with a swivel. The base is n 11-inch round, the bronze is 20 inches tall by 10 inches long and 7 inches wide. Total height with the panel is 25 inches.
