Sculptor puts tools to work on school art
BENA - "Tough, tough rock," sculptor Dewey Goodwin said after he takes his hat off and rubs his brow.
Goodwin just completed a bald eagle sculpture out of Dolomite, a carbonate mineral often used as an ornamental stone, which will grace the front entrance of the Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School near Bena.
The rock sculpture began as a 2,000-pound rectangular piece of stone, and once completed, the Bemidji artist shed more than 500 pounds from the rock.
