The Bridges - (Lloyd, Beau, Jeff) - Tom Clark Gnome - # 1151 - Created 1986 - Retired 1995 - Artist: Thomas F. Clark, Edition #23
Story: The Bridges - (May, 1987) - This statue was made to honor the people who work to preserve the old covered bridges of our nation. It takes time, money, and effort to restore these historical structures. The large coin was given to me by the Ohio Covered Bridge Society. The three Gnomes repairing the bridge are named for three of Hollywood's finest actors. Lloyd Bridges is the name of the Gnome repairing shingles on the roof. His son Beau has just repaired the entrance, while brother Jeff has gotten a little behind in his work. The second coin, by the entrance, pays for one trip though the covered bridge.
Comes without COA. Gnome is in very good condition and is so charming with father, Lloyd, sitting on top and sons Beau and Jeff crawling through the covered wagon.
This retired gnome was sculptured by America's premier sculptor Thomas F. Clark, Ph.D, of Cairn Studio, Ltd., Davidson, North Carolina. Dr. Clark is also the lead artist for Cairn Studio and is the most prolific sculptor in the figurine industry today. Each creation is hand-cast in a compounds of resin medium and is individually hand painted, antiqued, and highlighted.
