The Trek of Galguphia and Saldula
38" x 24" x 24"
This sculpture is based on my trek in the Himalayas in 2005. I went there to celebrate turning 50 with my friend Mark. I think of these dogs as Mark and myself on the trail. The final trek to reach the pass at over 16,000 feet was incredibly intense but an amazing life-changing experience. These guys are celebrating that experience.
The base is fabricated from old, rusted Coleman stove gas containers, which seems appropriate. The dogs are made from mountain bike tires, sticks, screws, bolts, and found objects.
