This is an original Bob Scriver bronze sculpture titled "Badgy". Robert Macfie Scriver (1914-1999) was born in Browning, Montana (in the heart of the Blackfoot Indian Reservation) in 1914. Scriver began sculpting using taxidermy to learn his craft of making wildlife bronzes. By 1962 he became a charter member of the Society of Animal Artists, had been accepted into the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America, listed in Who’s Who in American Art, and a member of the National Sculpture Society, and the National Academy of Western Art. Bob Scriver bronzes have been valued at over $30,000-$50,000. He is believed to be "The Cowboy’s National Sculptor" and one of the finest Montana bronze artists of the 20th century. This bronze is a wonderful depiction of a badger showing fine detail and artistic ability. The piece is marked "Badgy" and has been signed by the artist. It is numbered 2/250 and is in very good condition. The solid walnut hardwood base measures 3.75" x 4.75" and the piece is 2.75" tall.
