|Bear sculpture at Tilikum Place|
In 1912, local sculptor James Wehn created this magnificent, meticulously researched statue of Chief Seattle. Myrtle Loughery, the chief's great-great granddaughter, unveiled it on Founder's Day, November 13, 1912. Renovated in 1975, the Chief Seattle sculpture today presides over Tilikum Place, a small square at the intersection of Fifth Avenue, Denny Way, and Cedar Street, near the southeastern corner of the Seattle Center.
The drawing was done with water soluble graphite pencil. I like these better than the WS pens I was working with before. One of the little water brushes packs easily and works great to soften edges.
