'INTO THE WIND" is up for auction

If you go to the url above you'll find that Bob's original graceful and simple little conception of five geese landing, a moment from a hunting expedition we made in the Sixties, is up for auction. What this means is that either someone has died so that their belongings are in an estate to be converted into cash or that someone is REALLY hard up for cash. This little bronze only sold to people who dearly loved it and would not part with it easily.

Since this bronze was made, there have been other imitations -- the idea of birds linked this way so they appeared to be in the air struck a lot of people. It was a popular notion. We weren't sure it could be cast. Bob made a later version with more geese in it.
