This is Peter. He was 92 years old at the time of this sculpting.
Peter fought in WWll, survived capture, and live a huge life overall. He was a mechanical engineer, an accordion player, and made a mechanical Ogopogo, which is a prehistoric mythical sea monster that would have lived in Kelowana, BC.
I sculpted the 30 inch bust in less than two months with pictures provided by Peter’s son Ray.
Here I am with the clay bust.
Peter lived in Moldova (where he fought in WWll) and then in Kelowna, BC.
Ray commissioned two copies of his father’s bust statue, and they will be placed in two cities: Kelowna, British Columbia and Chisinau, Moldova. My name will appear on the plaque
