Big Mac

James Mellick

2014    Size   H: 20 in  W: 52 in  D: 17 in  

In a private collection

Constructed and carved in a highly figured walnut with copper overlay. Patrick Hernon of Dana Point, CA loves his English Labrador "Mac" who is getting along in years. He asked me to immortalize his dog as one of my series of "ghost dogs" that hang on opposite sides of a common wall. I don't do dog portraits but I try to tell the dog's story in the design. In this case, a Mockingbird that is an outdoor pest for Mac is included on his hind quarters and I've symbolized by "stitching" on his front left leg a tumor that had been removed.
