The Algonquin Wolf is a Hybrid of the Eastern Wolf and Coyotes to become a recognized separate species of wolf.  As its name implies, the Algonquin Wolf makes its home in Northern Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park where it thrives if left alone to hunt its natural prey. The Algonquin is an important predator and participant in the natural balance of all animal species within the park.  Outside of the Park Boundaries this magnificent animal was hunted close to elimination. The Algonquin Wolf is now on the threatened Species list and is protected in much of its habitat and the surrounding regions of the park in Northern Ontario and Western Quebec.

The Frame is  7" x 7" square stained Hardwood. Round opening is 5" dia. Artwork is covered with a Clear Domed glass lens.

Giving rise to an idea for a carving can be a daunting experience. Whether you’re an Author, a Painter or any other creative pursuit a project has to begin with an idea! How does an artist generate an idea for a carving subject? Almost all of my inspiration comes from the natural world and I am equally delighted by all creatures, large or small. A small Hummingbird is incredibly beautiful as is North America’s largest deer, the Moose. The fragility of a small Butterfly must convey that delicate fragility in the carving in addition to the startling beauty of its design. The power and size of the Moose must also be expressed. The final piece may take days or weeks to complete and once completed, the wood must be sealed with a durable finish and left to cure in preparation for casting a mold. The sealing and painting process must not lose or diminish any of the fine details of the hand-carved original.
