About the artwork

Hugh Glass was a hunter, trapper and explorer. Hunting for game near the Grand River Valley in 1823, he was severely injured after being attacked by a grizzly bear watching over her two cubs. His injuries were so bad it was doubtful he would survive. Despite having to later the set the bone of his own leg, Glass walked over 200 miles back to his camp area of Fort Kiowa, living off the land. Glass is depicted wearing his trademark fur hat that he apparently wore at the time. The 75mm vignette is based during the early stages of the attack before the bear was killed by members of the hunting party, and was scratch built entirely from magic sculpt, before being painted in acrylics. This small sculpture is based on events during the early stages of the attack, before the bear was killed by members of the hunting party, and was sculpted entirely from epoxy putty before being hand painted in acrylics. The sculpture should ideally be housed in a glass cabinet to protect from dust and the elements.
