Klyver’s Patty

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 22nd, 2007

This is a good photograph of the former Pennsylvania art professor Richard Klyver’s solid bronze sculpture, which is permanently housed at the International Cryptozoology Museum. Klyver created the Bigfoot, needless to say, from his sense of the Sasquatch shown in the Patterson-Gimlin footage.

The sculpture was recently on temporary display in Watertown, Massachusetts. This photo was taken at the Mass Monster Mash, October 12, 2007, by Don Keating. Used with his permission.

If interested in purchasing, please contact Klyver at windigo2@myfairpoint.net to talk to him about PayPal or snail mail check payment.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    hey loren wow great new photo of you at mass monster with the patty creature statue it looks awesome.. thanks bill green 🙂

  2. DARHOP responds:

    Loren, are their replicas of that statue that can be purchased?

  3. Loren Coleman responds:

    Klyver made a limited set of ten, and they are several thousands of dollars each. His work is in some of the finer galleries around the world. He only deals with serious collectors, and few people show that level of interest.

    This bronze was a donation to the museum several years ago.

  4. Cryptid Hunt responds:

    So Loren you own one of these statues? Because me and my dad are going to your cryptozoology museum in the summer and we like to see it!!!

  5. DARHOP responds:

    Thanks for the info. That is really one heck of a nice piece of work. Too bad there aren’t more realistic looking statues like that around that could be purchased.
    Christmas is coming up ya know. I’d love to have something like that.

    Jeff Johnson does the best Patty Modelkit or Statue. I am fortunate enough to own his Patty bigfoot and lochness model kits. Extremely well done.

  7. MattBille responds:

    Johnson makes a heck of a cool Dunkleosteus, too. I carried one around with me earlier this year at a writer’s conference as a conversation starter. It worked very well.
