The artist Richard Klyver has designed a new version of his famed Patterson-Gimlin sculpture in a more collectible size, for under $100.
Klyver’s new replica has these measurements: height – 12 1/2 inches tall, base length – 8 1/2 inches, and width 3 inches. The material used to create it is polyurethane plastic and the edition number is limited to 50, with each signed with Dick Klyver’s initials.
Klyver’s flowing, moving model is viewable in the four photos directly below:
Klyver’s new, smaller version of Patty is modeled after his larger solid bronze one, shown below. The large edition comes in a count of ten only. Those are $5000 each. The smaller pieces come in a limited edition, as well, and are $95 each.
The piece weighs two and a half pounds. The finish is a prime coat with three coats of lacquer with an oil paint glaze. Shipping is included anywhere in the continental USA. If interested, please contact Klyver at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk to him about PayPal or snail mail check payment.
The following shows retired Pennsylvania art professor Richard Klyver’s bronze sculpture, which is permanently housed at the International Cryptozoology Museum. Klyver created the Bigfoot art object, needless to say, from his sense of the living Sasquatch shown in the Patterson-Gimlin footage.
The sculpture (and me) are pictured below, at the Mass Monster Mash, on October 12, 2007, in a photograph by Don Keating. Used with his permission.
Thanks to Dick Klyver for there will be 10% donation of the purchase price to the International Cryptozoology Museum.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. 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.
