Dan Ostermiller’s unerring sense of animal anatomy most certainly stems from the time he spent working with his father, a widely respected Wyoming taxidermist. But Ostermiller’s bronze animals distill the essences of the animals he sculpts into universal forms that resonate beyond the accurate and move toward the ideal.
