The Burning of Ol' Yeller

James Mellick

1988    Size   H: 34 in  W: 40 in  D: 14 in  

In a private collection

Poplar with oil stain and copper. Allegory of the burning of Yellowstone Park in 1988. Like the ancient Egyptians, the small bear shows that proportions are not important when documenting and event or telling a story. I used the Renaissance composition element of the triangle completed by the flame. The sculpture is in a private collection in Seattle, WA.
