Majestic!

Add caption
Majestic is a Dall's sheep; indigenous to northern Alberta.

I have always been impressed with this noble animal. I choose to portray it leaping to the next ledge. And, I was amazed that the thin hind legs would  support the weight of the bronze...but they do.

The larger folds in the horn curl represent the animals age; one year per fold. Majestic is eight and in the prime of his life.
