I have been a life-long fan of filmmaker/animator Ray Harryhausen. A few years ago, I created a sculpture of one of his creations, the "Phororhacos" (or giant bird) from the movie "Mysterious Island". I learned that he no longer possessed the animation puppet used in the film, so I decided to bronze my work and present it to him as a gift. Unfortunately, the funds ran out to finish, package, and ship the sculpture. I'm hoping to raise the funds to have a wood/marble base created, purchase a sturdy package (such as a Pelican case), insurance and shipping from the Pacific Northwest to London, England, where Ray now lives.
