"The sculpture "Lord of the Couch" was inspired by Lena Leonardsson, who commissioned me to sculpt her dapper, departed Wokie. She convinced me he had the perfect personality for me to sculpt. In addition to being a spoiled boy, he was an all-around good worker. From October 1993 to April 1996, he participated in Earth Dog tests and placed in nine field trials. He was awarded a Certificate of Gameness by the American Working Terrier Association. He knew no strangers. When our smooth boy, Edgar, acted as if he owned our couch, Wokie in clay, became "Lord of the Couch." After my husband, Brian, named it, I learned the title was quite appropriate. When Wokie wasn't busy hunting rabbits, cornering woodchucks, or doing his Wokie-doodle dance, he was a real couch man. He spent a lot of time perched on top of the back of the couch. Imagine and enjoy." - Joy Kroeger Beckner

The miniature "Lord of the Couch" is available in three patinas:
1. Red (as shown on the first image above).
2. Wild boar (as shown on the second image above).
3. Light Red (as shown on the lifesized "Lord of the Couch" sculpture).

A separate limestone base is included with purchase. For an additional fee, an attached bronze base (as shown on the red patina, first image above) may be special ordered.
