Out of the ShadowsJoe Slockbower Statue - Mill Creek Studios 17" tall Wolf bust titled Out of the Shadows . Numbereed 1218/4000 and signed on the bottom of the base by artist Joe Slockbower (name also carved into statue as shown). Statue has been displayed but is in perfect condition (a bit dusty). The detail is fantastic. My research indicates that the statue is made of a porcelain/resin mix. For more information check out . Mill Creek Studios burned to the ground in 2009, so all of these statues are out of production and can never be reproduced. This statue was manufactured in 1996. Item will be shipped in original shipping carton with styroform - do not confuse this was some kind of collectible box. Comes exactly as shown. Due to size and weight, item will be shipped via FedEx. USPS Parcel Post is used to calculate shipping costs. If you know of a cheaper way to ship, I will happily do that for you. NOTE: In the coming weeks, I will be listing a total of ten Stephen Herrero and Joe Slockbower statues featuring bears, deer, wolves, cougars and dogs. Due to size and weight, I cannot combine shipping. All busts will be shipped in original shipping cartons. PLEASE READ MY RULES MOST E-MAIL QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED HERE.
