Wounded Warrior No. 4

James Mellick

2015    Size   H: 64 in  W: 20 in  D: 14 in  

Laminated, carved walnut with mixed media details. This is the fourth dog created for a traveling exhibition of "Wounded Warrior Dogs" to honor and raise support for their wounded human companions in battle. The Chocolate Lab wears the Iraq war service ribbon and is based on the bomb sniffing dog Cici who was recently reunited with his handler who lives in Grand Rapids, MI. At this time the wounded warrior dogs are not for sale (NFS). The intent is to have seven dogs for a small show by the Fall of 2015. I am currently looking for corporate sponsorship to handle, promote and cover the costs of delivering the work to each exhibition venue.
