A small sculpture to hold in the hand! (Actually it was a project for a much larger sculpture). I like to show, in the manner of Giacometti, that the presence of a sculpture is not due to its format but to its emotional charge.

I finished this sculpture on Christmas Day 2019 and at first I called it Happy Christmas, imagining the bear cub offering the fish as gifts!
Now I prefer Back from Fishing, which I feel is more appropriate to the subject.
Brown patina, lighter background with green glints for the fish.
