Eric is a genius. You will not find more beautiful sculptures of wildlife anywhere. His complex understandings of anatomy and natural motion make his work graceful and dramatic.

The sculptures inside are gorgeous and very realistic. My son thought a painting was actually a photograph, it was that realistic. Eric Thorsen is very talented and has a sweet family, they were all very nice to us during our visit.
